This hour, we discuss Baby Bonds. The program promises to make $50-million per year available for accounts for children born in poor families. The $3,200 deposits grow until the child becomes an adult.

Also, we review the next steps in the recreational cannabis program, and the governor's recent veto of a bill putting limits on solitary confinement.

Guests:

  • Connecticut State Representative Bobby Gibson -- General Assembly Black and Puerto Rican Caucus Co-chair, General Law Committee Vice-chair
  • Hugh McQuaid -- CT News Junkie Reporter
