    The 2018 fiscal year begins July 1 for most states, which means budgets must be set by midnight. But for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, meeting that deadline is not a done deal. Katie Meyer, Joe Hernandez and Mark Eichmann explain what is going on in each state.  Dave Heller sat down with Frank Newport, editor-in-chief at the Gallup Poll, for a check up regarding Americans’ thoughts on health care. Solomon Jones talks about how Seth Williams’ misconduct comes as a betrayal to Philadelphia’s black community. Mark Eichmann takes us to Vaughn Correctional Center where, following February’s deadly hostage take over, the correction officers union is producing a documentary allowing guards to tell their story. A horse riding club in a blighted section of North Philadelphia is the subject of a large art installation at the Barnes Foundation. Peter Crimmins reports on a French artist’s collaboration with the riders to make the work.
