WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses reports that the Senate opened debate on President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill Thursday without support from a single Republican senator. Dr. Chartock also comments on reports that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's top aides altered a July Health Department report to hide the higher COVID-19 death toll in nursing homes. Despite the recent scandals faced by the Cuomo administration, a new Quinnipiac poll says a majority of New Yorkers don't want Cuomo to resign. 

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
