035 Kavanaugh, Occupational Licensing, Ethics Commission and more

On this week’s episode Dowd and Paul discuss the Brett Kavanaugh becoming a justice on the US Supreme Court as well as assessing some of the key Court decisions in the past year and the politics of the issue as we move toward Election Day.   They briefly recap the bail reform event and discuss the executive order issued by Gov.
