Today:   We have three perspectives of the 2019 Indiana General Assembly session that adjourned for the year last week.  Ed Feigenbaum, the editor of the "Indiana Gaming Insight" and "Indiana Legislative Insight" newsletters published by Hanna News Service talks first and at-length about the gaming omnibus bill that awaits the Governor's review.  It involves changes in gaming casino licenses that will affect the city of Gary and establishes new gambling avenues.  Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch joins us for her "take" on the 2019 session, since she is the president of the Indiana Senate.  And Indiana Public Broadcasting statehouse reporter Brandon Smith has a wrap-up that includes some insight into why this session -- although very busy -- was not in "crisis mode" at any time.
