Today:  Indiana state Representative Carolyn Jackson (D-Hammond) is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about being a panelist for the next "Women4Change" online forum on Wednesday, July 28th that will focus on reducing the state gender pay gap.  Jackson joins WGU Indiana chancellor Alison Bell in the discussion.  Sophie Quinton with the Pew Charitable Trusts' "Stateline" project talks about a new report on state tax revenues which grew into surpluses in some states, like Indiana, during the pandemic.  Indiana's surplus will trigger a tax return to Hoosiers.  Sophie will discuss what the "Stateline" team discovered in what the states plan to do with the additional funds coming in over the next few years, and any impact it may have on long-term budgeting.  And we have another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
