On this week’s Regional Roundup: we’ll hear how the Supreme Court rejected an appeal over a Pennsylvania school district’s transgender restroom policy. The ACLU’s MARY CATHERINE ROPER, who was co-counsel on the case, joins us. We’ll also discuss a recent report claiming that Pennsylvania is not doing enough to combat pollution in the Chesapeake Bay when KATE FRITZ, Executive Director of the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay joins us. And we end the hour talking about peregrine falcons, their amazing comeback from the brink of extinction in Eastern U.S. and why they like calling Philadelphia home. Our guest is ARTHUR McMORRIS, peregrine falcon coordinator for Pennsylvania Game Commission.
