Primary elections loom, and the governor’s budget is being considered in the legislature

Carolyn Kaster

On today’s episode of The Confluence:

  • Gov. Josh Shapiro is traveling the state drumming up support for his key proposals in his $44 billion budget proposal, but the state treasurer warns the commonwealth  could be headed for a fiscal cliff, so lawmakers need to protect rainy day funds. We discuss these issues and more with our roundtable of politics reporters. 

  • Today’s guests include: Stephen Caruso, capitol reporter with Spotlight PA; Sam Dunklau, WESA’s capitol bureau chief; Marley Parish, state Senate reporter with the Pennsylvania Capital-Star; and Chris Potter, WESA’s government and accountability editor. 

The Confluence, where the news comes together, is 90.5 WESA’s daily news program. Tune in Monday to Friday at 9 a.m. to hear newsmakers and innovators take an in-depth look at stories important to the Pittsburgh region. Find more episodes of The Confluence here for wherever you get your podcasts.
