After a rather rocky, controversial start, to his unorthodox administration, President Donald J. Trump received generally high marks – for his address – last Tuesday – to Congress. What can we expect, from members of Western Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation, when they consider legislative proposals, such as the elimination of the Affordable Care Act – or Obamacare, and pathways, to tax reform? We’ll talk with Representative Mike Kelly – Republican – from the 3rd Congressional District (Butler) – and one of President Trump’s earliest supporters. Congressman Kelly is now a member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.

The Sunday Business Page
This Sunday morning, on “The Sunday Business Page”, with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano:
On this week’s program – challenging times, for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – and its efforts to maintain the aging locks and dams, along the Upper Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers. Although commercial traffic has dropped off, in these areas, the Allegheny and Monongahela have seen increased activity for tourism. However, the way that legislation has been written – Western Pennsylvania – with some of the oldest locks and dams in the country – is losing federal financial support, to maintain their repair – to other areas.
Our guest – Colonel John Lloyd — Commander of the Pittsburgh District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – talks with Jon Delano about what is necessary, to improve the safety and viability of these critical structures that control river flow, and also protect communities, against flooding.
Then, we’ll look at last week’s fiasco, at the Academy Awards, involving the once-prestigious, international certified public accounting and financial services firm – Price Waterhouse Coopers. What happened – to cause the wrong envelope for Best Motion Picture, to be handed to Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway? How has the firm’s reputation, branding, and the relationship between PWC and the Motion Picture Academy been damaged, and what may happen, next? We’ll ask Duquesne University’s marketing expert, Audrey Guskey, Ph.D. – Associate Professor at the Palumbo Donahue School of Business – for her perspective.
Finally, we’ll preview the Pittsburgh Business Show – scheduled for April 19th -20th – at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, in Downtown Pittsburgh. Our guests include the president of the show – Linda Jo Thornberg – and Susan Weinzierl – owner of the Sewickley, Pennsylvania-based Professional Graphic Communications, Incorporated – and a scheduled exhibitor, at the first Pittsburgh Business Show.
