Lawmakers try to make sense of the state budget in the absence of a few bills that Senator Roman Prezioso says needed to pass but didn't. Climate change researchers Lonnie and Ellen Thompson warn their audience about the carbon footprint we're making. One area of Huntington will soon see demolition and construction that could go a long way towards changing the city’s reputation.
