Coming up this evening on Capital Tonight
- The Vito Lopez scandal was bad news for the Assembly Democrats, with their leader, Speaker Sheldon Silver, under fire for keeping the accusations from the public. So far one member, Michael Kearns from Buffalo, has left the conference to protest Silver’s actions. But most Democrats are standing by Silver, and supporting his proposals to change the way sexual harassment cases are handled in the future. We’ll talk to Assembly Majority Leader about those proposals, and about getting back to work passing legislation.
- Voters passed 95 percent of school budgets yesterday, but only eight out of 27 attempts to override the property tax cap were successful. We’ll talk to Tim Kremer from the NYS School Boards Association and Bob Lowry from the NYS Council of School Superintendents about the results.
- Pro-life groups are out with another ad opposing the governor’s women’s equality agenda. They argue he’s putting abortion ahead of job creation. Kirsten Smith of New Yorkers for Live and Rev. Jason McGuire of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms will explain.
