Voices of Reason S1E7 at the Capitol Rotunda

The PoliticsPA podcast, “Voices of Reason,” went on the road to the State Capitol Rotunda for a jam-packed episode.

First, we spoke with the president and CEO of BallotPA, David Thornburgh, about the group’s efforts to change state law and permit registered independent voters to cast ballots in state primary elections. Rep. Jared Solomon also checked in about his House Bill 979 that hopes to achieve the same.

We had a conversation with Kevin Shivers, chief executive officer for the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers, and Christina Mihalik, senior vice president for government relations for the Cross State Credit Union Association, about the proposed ban on swipe fees from the sales tax portion of transactions, which risks disrupting the electronic payment system that guards your credit and debit cards in Pennsylvania.

Finally, Luke Bernstein, president and chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry talked to us about proposed net operating loss (NOL) reform aiming to foster economic growth and attract new businesses to the Commonwealth.

“Voices of Reason” podcast has covered the most important issues in Pennsylvania politics – from education funding to trust in elections. Secretary of the Commonwealth Al Schmidt, State Treasurer Stacy Garrity, and House Appropriations Chairman Jordan Harris are just a few of many influential guests who have joined us for exclusive interviews and roundtable discussions.
