Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., walks towards the Senate floor on Capitol Hill in Washington, Nov. 2011.

Patrick Leahy's seniority in the U.S. Senate puts him at the center of key issues facing Congress. Senator Leahy is our guest to discuss his bill on Internet piracy, federal funds for Irene recovery, and the National Defense Authorization Act. 

Also in the program, Vermont has seen a spate of animal cruelty investigations in the last few months. We talk with Joanne Bourbeau of the Humane Society of the United States about that trend.

 

During this interview, we referred to the National Defense Authorization Act. You can find text and details here from the Senate Armed Services Committee.
