    Tom MacDonald reports lawmakers grilled Amtrak officials and engaged in more than a bit of partisan grandstanding at today’s Congressional hearing on the crash of Amtrak train 188.  Pennsylvania State Representative Ryan Bizzarro joins us to discuss his legislation allowing same day voter registration.  Marie Cusick reports power grids are increasingly relying on natural gas over coal energy.  Neema Roshania talks to members of a soccer team that incorporates both special ed. and regular education students.  And we’re joined by Chester ninth grader Emily Yu, who just won the Karlie Kloss girls coding camp scholarship–one of just 21 awarded in the country.
