On this week’s edition of the Regional Roundup: we’ll begin by discussing a new resolution introduced into the Philadelphia City Council that would allow voters to decide if term limits should be imposed on councilpersons, allowing a maximum 12 years in office. The Philadelphia Inquirer’s JULIA TERRUSO tells us about the backstory and the debate over the issue. Then, a new Trump administration rule may hinder New Jersey’s lucrative legal sports betting industry. NJ Spotlight’s JOHN REITMEYER tells us what this could mean for online gambling in the state. Lastly, the debate over funding for nuclear power has reemerged, as plant closures are likely if money is not allocated to the existing facilities. The Associated Press’ MARC LEVY joins us.
