Guests: Eugene DePasquale, Charlie Dent

Today we’re joins by Pennsylvania Auditor General, EUGENE DePASQUALE. He’s been explicit about some of the changes he’d like to see in the state, including legalizing marijuana in order to increase revenue, expanding the power of his office in order to give him greater authority to audit state agencies, as well as ending the practice of tax-payer funded sexual harassment settlements in the state government. He joins Marty to talk about the Pennsylvania’s fiscal situation, how to generate and save revenue, and other issues facing the Commonwealth. Then, we’ll hear from Rep. CHARLIE DENT to get his thoughts on the government shutdown.
