Watch: Capitol Journal, May 13, 2022

By TODD STACY, Alabama Daily News

Did you catch Capitol Journal on Alabama Public Television this week? It was a good show.

I spoke to Dr. Barbara Cooper, Secretary of the Department of Early Childhood Education, about the continued growth and success of First Class Pre-k.

I also sat down with Mark Colson, President & CEO of the Alabama Trucking Association, to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the trucking industry.

And I interviewed Michael Allen, Managing Director of Beacon Global Strategies, about a number of national and international topics. A Mobile native, Michael is a leading expert on national security and foreign policy, so our conversation was unique for Capitol Journal.

Plus Randy Scott reported on the ongoing worker shortage being experienced by small businesses and Karen Goldsmith covered how NASA is encouraging young students in Alabama to pursue careers in the space industry.
