Advocates are asking lawmakers to restore funding for afterschool programs that was cut from in the executive budget. The New York State Network for Youth Success calculates more than 3,600 students could end up losing their spots in afterschool programs if the money is not added back into the budget. And the group argues that not only do kids benefit academically from quality afterschool programming, but it let's parents work more hours. Chris Neitzey from the Network for Youth Success, and Joanne Allie from the Hudson Afterschool Program join us to discuss.
