Members of a Mega-Region?

With an imminent influx of funds earmarked for transportation projects, there is renewed interest in a bold proposal to merge the Richmond-Petersburg metropolitan statistical area (MSA) with our own. The newly created "mega-region" would cover 4,630 square miles and make the newly created region more competitive when vying for corporate investments and federal funding. Cathy Lewis is joined today by the the plan's originators and an expert in regional development for a look at the economic benefits and challenges that the creation of a local mega-region would bring.
