Today: Steve Coxhead, president of the Indiana Passenger Rail Alliance, tells us more about the new initiative by IPRA and the Northern Indiana Passenger Rail Asociation to get state legislators to support the creation of the Indiana Passenger Rail Commission. It would serve as a tool to focus and coordinate state advocacy groups as well as state agencies toward 21st Century passennger rail systems. The proposal could be discussioned at a summer legislative study session. We also have another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," with Carl Lisek of South Shore Clean Cities and supported by SSCC and NIRPC. And Indiana economist-writer-speaker Morton Marcus joins us in the Lakeshore Public Radio studio to talk about his latest "Eye on the Pie" columns. They range from discussion of the current General Assembly session to a concept once taught in Economics 101 classes in college.We also bring back Nick Johnson with Home Snacks.net and his latest "Best Places to Live in Indiana" list for this year. They include several towns in northwest Indiana.
