Senator Tim Kaine | Transparency and the Peninsula Airport Commission
Tuesday, July 25, 2017

We'll talk today with Virginia Senator, Tim Kaine, about the latest developments surrounding health care reform in Washington.

Later in the show: In May, Peninsula Airport Commission Executive Director, Ken Spirito, was fired after a Virginia Department of Transportation audit discovered he used airport money for personal expenses. The commission's search for a replacement comes just days after calls from Richmond for better training for board members and a greater focus on transparency. Today we'll talk with Virginia Secretary of Transportation, Aubrey Layne, about the need for accountability and visibility with entities like the Peninsula Airport Commission.
