And we’ll look deeper into the municipal economic crisis that states, cities and towns are facing around the country. What are some solutions and difficult choices that will have to be made, post COVID-19? Finally, we’ll talk about freedom vs control as sates look to re-open their economy and methods of containing the virus which also may impact our privacy.
