Episode Description

On this Thursday’s Capital Thinking, host Kevin O’Neill will first interview Greg Walden on the rising popularity of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) otherwise known as the drone. Greg will focus on the various implications associated with the usage of this type of aircraft, and what the Federal Aviation Administration is considering in terms of regulation. Immigration reform talks have stalled after months of Congressional deadlock. Will there be any decisive action taken this election year? Anu Varma will offer his analysis. Next, Josh Greene will discuss the implementation of new state-level energy regulations across the country, including a closer look at the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
