Casinos, Taxes, And Paid Family Leave

Nov 6, 2017

Grab a pen and a book of stamps; it's time to talk about... taxes. Last week, the GOP unveiled a new, postcard-friendly measure -- "The The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act."

What exactly is in the tax overhaul bill and what does it mean for Connecticut? 

This hour, we dig in with POLITICO reporter Colin Wilhelm.

We also find out what’s happening with plans for a third casino in East Windsor, Connecticut, and we hear from Senator Richard Blumenthal about Sunday's mass shooting in Texas

Plus: zeroing in on paid family leave. Filmmaker Ky Dickens takes us behind the scenes of her new documentary Zero Weeks.
