Today:   Steve Coxhead of the Indiana Passenger Rail Alliance is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about Amtrak's plans to expand its nationwide routes with $80 billion from President Biden's infrastructure plan.  IPB News reporter Mitch Legan has a feature on diversity and the lack of it in the General Assembly and state politics in general.  Valparaiso University music professor Jeffrey Brown talks about this week's virtual Jazz Fest and VU civil engineering professor Jay Grossman talks about his continuing research into traffic signal detection systems this year that will come with an INDOT grant. The research will study if the  new technologies are as safe and efficient as current ones.
