Picking Up the Pieces: Life after the 2014 Legislative Session

This was a difficult political season for moderates hoping to stem the tide of extremist policies. While there were some bright spots—holding the line on discrimination, wind energy and Common Core—there were many more depressing results, on education, responsible revenue streams, judicial independence, teacher due process, etc.

Was it really that bad? (Yes.) Where do we go from here? What's next?

We will ask our guests to help us figure that out.
