A tale of two State Reps

Listen 49:28

Guests: Chris Rabb, John Taylor

The Pennsylvania legislature has a lot on the docket for 2018. Among the issues being addressed will be redistricting reform, the opioid epidemic, and fracking. We’ve asked two statehouse representatives from Philadelphia to join us on the show today to talk about what is coming before the general assembly this year, but also discuss the culture of Harrisburg and about their very different experiences within state government. CHRIS RABB has served one year as Democratic Representative of Pennsylvania’s  200th District in northwest Pennsylvania. JOHN TAYLOR is Republican Representative who recently announced his retirement after representing northeast Pa.’s 177th District for 33 years.
