Slot machines could soon be on the menu in Pennsylvania restaurants and bars. Some lawmakers are better that and other gambling changes will boost state revenue, others say it’s a bad deal for seniors and schools. Today we’ll hear from both sides. Glenn’s summer forecast. Will we sizzle like last year or will it rain more than usual? Chief meteorologist Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz is here with some answers. And fact check! Can workers thank Mr. Trump for a new coal mine in Pennsylvania? The President thinks so. We’ll tell you if our partners at FactCheck.Org agree. Our host is NBC10’s Erin Coleman.
Face the State
This week we sit down with Senator Mike Regan – also a former U.S. Marshal – for insight into the state budget, the congressional shooting, and other topics.

Our Insiders tackled the optics of the Cosby Trial, REBUILD funding, the League of Women Voters addressing Gerrymandering districts in PA, and NJ Gov Christie’s proposal for the Lottery to solve pension funding issues.

Fast-moving developments, this past week, in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Russia interfered in the results of the 2016 American Presidential election.
President Donald J. Trump tweeted to followers, that he is being investigated, for “firing the F.B.I. Director, by the man who told me to fire the F.B.I. Director. Witch Hunt!”
Did conversations between the President, and then-F.B.I. Director James Comey, open the President, to charges of obstruction of justice – in the Russian investigation?
How would a decision by President Trump, to fire Mueller – affect the case?

On this week’s program:
Pittsburgh’s growing reputation as a major center for medical research and treatment has received a big boost. This past week, Highmark Health announced a 200-million-dollar investment in a new , academic cancer institute facility – on the campus of Allegheny General Hospital.
It’s part of a growing collaboration with the prestigious Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, and Highmark Health’s partnership with the Allegheny Health Network (also, a Highmark Health member) — which operates Allegheny General, and other medical facilities.
We’ll ask David Holmberg – President & CEO of Highmark Health – about this ambitious project.
Then, the potential impact of another, one-quarter percent hike, this past week, by the Federal Reserve, in the prime lending rate. What impact will that have – on your ability to buy a car, or pay your mortgage?
PNC Financial Services Group’s Chief Economist – Augustine “Gus” Faucher, Ph.D. – shares his perspective.
And – we’ll talk about a bill – signed into law, a week ago, by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, that received rare, bi-partisanship support. It makes major changes in the pension system – for state employees.
Sen. Jay Costa(D)PA. 43rd Senatorial District (Allegheny County) will discuss the implications of this important legislation, on workers, and taxpayers.
Please join Jon Delano, this Sunday morning, for “The Sunday Business Page” @6:30AM., on KDKA-TV!
