As tax day approaches, we bring you a show all about "Saving and Spending." We'll learn how much a plan to modernize D.C. taxis will cost riders, and go inside a debate over funding for the District's school librarians. Plus, a trip to Culpeper, Va., to visit the world's largest treasure trove of films, TV shows and sound recordings... and a group of D.C. kids with an unusual mission: to help Illinois schoolkids raise money to tour the nation's capital.
