With the A-I revolution upon us – emerging technologies like chatbots have become more common. Now Congressional offices and federal offices are starting to adopt these new technologies.

Then up next, Governor Josh Shapiro signs the first bill of his administration. It’s a first-of-its-kind law in the nation. We hear from the Governor, legislators from both sides of the aisle and organizers who pushed for it.

Up next, Homers For Hope how the charity is hitting it out of the park by helping families in need of assistance.

And, in our final segment of Politics In Focus today we stick with baseball – and turn to the Camden County Miracle League.
