Connecticut’s two U.S. Senators say the 1st anniversary of the U.S. Capitol insurrection and riot should give momentum to their colleagues to take action on voting rights bills. Gun sales in Connecticut were way up in 2021. An ex-Long Island Rail Road worker gets busted for abusing overtime. And new laws in New York prevent drug prices from skyrocketing due to middlemen at the pharmacy.

A native Long Islander, J.D. is WSHU's managing editor. He also hosts the climate podcast Higher Ground. J.D. reports for public radio stations across the Northeast, is a journalism educator and proud SPJ member.
