In northgate, Hannah Knowles, come on news. Government red tape appears to be slowing the licensing process and impacting the mental health crisis in Washington. Here's northwest news radio's John libertini. The licensing for psychologists in waiting is taking months even years. I've ever seen it. Too long says doctor Samantha slaughter with the Washington state psychological association. They're waiting for permission to take the exam so they can get their license and get on with their lives and be able to help the people that they know so desperately need treatment. Staffing shortages technical glitches and a suddenly confusing licensing process have plagued the examining board of psychology. But let's get back to applicants about what the issue was and then not being clear about what the issue was with their application. Things like that that have really caused a huge backlog. Those delays have hurt men, women, and children with psychological problems. Some have been on waiting lists for up to two years. Right now, as many as 400 people are waiting on licenses, psychologists that could increase the workforce by 11%. The state is working on the problem. John libertini, northwest news radio.

"Okay, you mentioned the big card at Laurel tomorrow. They actually have four nice stakes on the card tomorrow. So we're going to start with race number 7. It's the $100,000 prince George's county stakes. These are three year olds and up going a mile and one 8th on the turf. We've got a field of 7 Dave and a couple of them are low on the morning line. Number one pixelate is your 8 to 5 favorite. The 5 Beacon hill right there at 9 to 5 as well. Sometimes you make the comment that it's not a horse you want to bet on, but it's a horse you love to own. A lot of these horses probably fit that category. These are horses that have made 200, 400, $500,000, pixelated made $1.1 million and is only one 6 of 23 career starts. I actually think this is a great spot for pixelate off the layoff for Mike's you look at a horse that has probably been overwhelmed against grade one and grade two competition, but a $100,000 stakes in Maryland fits this horse really, really nicely. Now pixelated is going to need some pace to run with eons number two and Beacon hill number 5 ran against each other last time. I think they're the other two most likely winners. Neither of them have any pace either. So to me it really comes down to those are the only three horses that I can get on board with that I think are good enough to win a race like this. But can somebody steal it? Can one of those three horses be forwardly placed? I don't know the answer to that. I like pixelate the best, but if you can tell me who's going to be on the lead, that's a horse I'd like to put $2 on. Well, it's kind of the reason I put Beacon hill on top. Beacon hill, when he was running on dirt, was a front running type, not that he was a bullet, but he did go wired a wire in his maiden win, went 23 and three for the quarter 46 and three for the half over at Indiana grand when it was in the artist formerly known as Indiana grand. But since he's moved over to the turf, it looks like they've been concentrating on getting him to settle and close. Now I don't know if Victor Carrasco who's riding Beacon hill for the first time will have different thoughts on the Mike Matt's trainee than some of the other writers have, but there has been speed at least at times with Beacon hill. It just hasn't been real recent. So that's why I'm putting Beacon hill on top. I can understand why you like pixelate who, by the way, gets a major writer improvement in my eyes with heavy on Toledo, picking up the mount tomorrow afternoon should be a fun addition of the prince George's county goes as race 7 tomorrow at Laurel park. 8 three is on the Laurel card is the $100,000 almond north. Phillies and mayors here are going to sprint 6 and a half furlongs on the main track just a field of 5 Dave and you've got a wind machine named chub wagon who's only tasted defeat once in a 12 race career. Earnings in nearly 600,000 and his second off the layoff here, a horse that really hasn't done anything wrong. That being said, 5 of the 12 wins have come against state bred horses. And I'm not so sure that the races that chub wagon has been in recently are as good as the races that number one Qatar has been in. Chitara one last time out at Hawthorne, but before that was running at Churchill downs and at fairgrounds before that at keeneland, I think chittara on a four to one morning line is tremendous value in here, a horse that's in good form that's one at keenland and fairground. The figs are not quite as good as chub wagon, but I don't like the resume as much if not better. I think chitaura is a really nice value in cure. And I'm not so sure the two fillet DS breed is impossible either a horse that has won 9 times 8 of those wins have been at Laurel kind of a horse for the course and a repeat of the effort at Penn last time out might be good enough. I think the 7 of 5 on chub wagon is a bet against to me. I would prefer someone else. I've got chitara on top, but I might try to place several just to beat sub wagon. Okay, I'm also going to try to beat chub wagon with number two feet of spree. What you mentioned is one of the reasons I like her. The fact that she's, she's the horse for a course. She runs her best races at Laurel and the race that really put it over the top for me was not a win for her, but the third place finish earlier this year in the grade three Barbara fritchie behind glass ceiling. She was only a length behind glass ceiling. What would glass ceiling be if she were in this race? And if you're only a length behind her, you got to have a chance in the Alma north tomorrow. So we're both going to try to beat the wind machine chub wagon, which does not happen very often. Dave going with number one chitara, I'm going with the two feet to spree in the Alma north race 8 on tomorrow's Laurel card. Let's move ahead to race number 9 on the card and this is the big dreyfuss, a $100,000 for the Phillies and mirrors going a mile in an 8th on the turf. Nice field of ten here, Dave, including last year's champion tightly twisted. That's actually the last time that she saw the winner circle. Now the big Dreyfus last year was run over at pimlico. It's back at Laurel this year tightly twisted was 9 and a half to one when she won last year. She's probably going to be about 9 and a half to one if she wants to win it again, but there are some other pretty good Phillies and mirrors in the field, including the morning line favorite petrichor for Bill Mott and Victor Carrasco. Yeah, tightly twisted wins. It's going to be a loser for me. That's a horse that had won an optional claimer at 25,000 before winning this race at 9 and a half to one last time. And the last four races since then are all out of the money, including a 5th place performance on the turf at parks last time out, the only race this year. I like mats horse. I think the favorite makes a whole lot of sense in Kira. I thought the race at Churchill last time out running forth against a field that's dramatically better than this. It was pretty strong. Was the favorite in there. I think petrichor has a big, big chance in cure. I'm a little bit interested in all on the rail. I don't know if alms wants a myelin and 8th, but I think could sit a really nice trip just off the pace.

"Well to see a always hard to choose one or two because the issues are so intertwined but you know just to to again approach it from the experience of your typical working family here in massachusetts Housing costs are going up and up. healthcare costs are going up and up. People are sitting a long time in traffic. And that's time that folks would much rather be at home taking care of their Aging parents helping their kids with their homework being civically active in their communities. And so those are the those issues that are going to be a first and foremost on my priority list and these are issues where again. I'm interested in tackling them at their roots. It's been too long. That beacon hill has been saying to families That we should have just nibbling around the edges is enough or the people should need to wait another year or another term for really profound change on these issues so you ask for a specific example And i'll i'll go. I'll go to economic development and economic opportunity and justice right our our wealth gap and particularly racial loss. Gap in massachusetts is one of the largest in the nation and we have folks who have been working and working their butts off. If i can say that on the radio for year network hub and not seeing race relative to inflation. Right does a huge problem for our commonwealth things. We can do to address that one. Is you know as much education isn't an issue that i'm known for him beacon hill. It is not a silver bullet but is the single biggest lever. We have from public policy standpoint. for tackling both economic inequality and injustice and economic opportunity. Right building opportunity because if we can equip young people with that strong nation in life. day they're going to be able to do the rest of the work right. They're gonna go far and we also know that. A prepared workforce is one of the things that has hamstringing our industries in our employers in massachusetts is one of the most common frustrations that i hear from employers. Is the selling me for interrupting years. Just there's so much i want to get to. What is a specific for example policy idea on an educated workforce that you're thinking about so i'll give you to write about one is that we need to follow through with discipline and with vigor. Our implementation of student opportunity act which is something that i fought for and succeeded getting into law a five year battle right to get it into line passed in twenty nineteen. But that's a seven year in process and we have to do it with discipline less. We not hit that goal.

Thanks thank you to seattle so joining us now for more. Context is victor matheson. He's a professor of economics and accounting at holy cross. Who studies sports betting victor. Welcome back to radio boston. Well thank you for having me. So i wanna start with kind of the big picture political observers like to say that massachusetts is a little behind the eight ball here crawling over the finish line as we often have lagged on questions of gaming. What is the national picture on. Legalized sports betting. And how do we compare right. So the national picture is that has of a roughly three years ago today. It was legal essentially nowhere. The united states outside of biggest and a couple of a small outlier states like montana could offer deems through their lottery then. The supreme court said that sports gambling could no longer be made illegal by the federal government. That did legalize it everywhere. But it gave individual states the opportunity to legalize it and we've seen very rapid movement. Here is so over the past three years. Now at least thirty states have legalized sports gambling. Or at least in the process of doing so. So we're a little bit slow here but again three years from starting from nothing to having most of the a legalizing gambling on. Or you know that. That's that's pretty quick. So victor you heard steve report that the discussion on the massachusetts house floor sixty million dollars a year potentially tax revenue five million dollar fee annually for various parties involved. What are your thoughts on those revenue estimates. So those are certainly in the ballpark if we see something like the uk where they have had widespread widespread a legalization of sports gambling for for decades. And all you can do it again on your on your phones or in lots of lots of betting parlors They have over a thousand dollars of wagers being made a year or or every adults in the country. I translate outs of massachusetts. And you're talking about a five billion dollars wagers being made and you'd be talking easily in the tens of millions of dollars of revenue being collected by the government. So those aren't those aren't out of out of recent at all. Yeah victor so. I was going to follow up and say. Do you have reason to believe that. We would see that level order of magnitude of betting activity in in the commonwealth. Yeah actually we do so the states that have legalized. Gambling have rapidly. It's it's a popular sport. Then it's popular activity and so we've seen lots of people engaging in this activity and we are as a country well on our way with it by twenty twenty two. We'll probably be seeing at least a hundred billion dollars worth of wagers being made and that would would be essentially the same amount of things on a.
