Albany Times Union Associate Editor Mike Spain talks with WAMC's David Guistina about the Albany County Legislature voting last night on a resolution to prevent the hiring of former county elected officials for four years after their terms have ended, and environmentalists and state lawmakers are worried natural gas fracking water waste will be dumped in New York – which has banned fracking.  They’re pushing the Department of Environmental Conservation to keep regulations in place that limits on radiation detection systems at landfills.

David Guistina is the host of Capital Connection, Legislative Gazette, and Morning Edition and the producer of the Media Project on WAMC.
