Power & Politics - Full Show for Aug. 24

Posted: Updated:

This week on NJ Power & Politics -- Newark's newest lead pipe water crisis enters Week 2. Gov. Phil Murphy is demanding federal help, while resisting calls to declare his own state of emergency.

And a lawsuit has put New Jersey's medically assisted suicide law on hold. Democrats in the Legislature hope the judge's decision will be reversed.

Plus a new proposal aims to increase the penalties for officials who may have lied to the Legislature. Does it target members of Gov. Murphy's administration who testified during the Katie Brennan hearings?
