We delve into the push for Universal Pre-K. Rob Astorino, the GOP's likely candidate for governor, explains why many in his party are hesitant to support the current proposals. We'll break down the true costs, and hear from stakeholders as well. RCSD school board president Van White joins us by phone (he’s at a community lunch), and in studio:
Mary Jo Brach of the Crestwood Children's Center
Carolyn Lee-Davis, a policy analyst for the Children's Agenda

At one, a piece of legislation under consideration in Albany could impact the cost of the wine you buy. It's a rather strange proposal that seems to favor two large companies over smaller businesses. And this week, many Finger Lakes winery owners have called on lawmakers to stop the bill, arguing it would hurt their businesses. So what's going on? We'll explain. Guests are in flux due to weather, so I’ll update as necessary.

At 1:30, we go live to Sochi, Russia with Kevin Oklobzija of the Democrat & Chronicle. He joins us by phone.
