AZ Illustrated Politics Debuts Tonight!

Posted By on Fri, Feb 8, 2013 at 10:00 AM

AZ Illustrated Politics—the program formally known as Arizona's Illustrated Political Roundtable—will return to the airwaves tonight.

I'll be back in the host's seat and we'll have Democratic strategist Rodd McLeod, former Pima County Democratic Party chairman Jeff Rogers and former state lawmakers Frank Antenori and Paula Aboud as our guests.

We'll be talking about background checks on gun shows; President Barack Obama's call for a new ban on semi-automatic weapons and extended magazines; what kind of gun laws we can expect to see at the Arizona Legislature this year; the future of comprehensive immigration reform; whether Gov. Jan Brewer can persuade lawmakers to extend health-care coverage to low-income Arizonans as part of the federal Affordable Care Act; and, if we have time, the settlement between Tucson and the Rio Nuevo board.

Tune in at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 6. And if you haven't check out the rest of the new AZ Illustrated lineup, you can see what it's all about here.
