John Walters of Seven Days hosts while Dave Gram is away. He brings us his interview with Danica Roem, the first openly transgender person elected to a state legislature. She’s a member of the Virginia House of Delegates and was in Burlington on June 14 for a fundraising event for gubernatorial candidate Christine Hallquist.
After Danica’s interview, John talks with House Speaker Mitzi Johnson on the Governor’s veto of the budget bill and why its hard to get to a compromise.
In the second hour, Deputy Attorney General Chris Curtis comes into the studio to talk about the new proposed federal rule that would require maple and honey producers to put “contains added sugar” on packaging. Chris will also be talking about the latest Volkswagen settlement. And Chris Miller and Jerry Williams call in to talk about the new Agriculture statue for the statehouse dome they’re working on.
