"Times" chief political reporter Dan Carden is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his stories in print and online about the end of the 2022 General Assembly session. A city councilmember from South Bend was the only northern Indiana city official to participate in the National League of Cities "Congressional City Conference" in Washington, D.C. Councilmember Lori Hamman will tell us what she's learned at the conference about the details of the American Rescue Plan Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law — funds which are coming back into communities to help recover from the pandemic. And we'll hear from a former TV news anchor who is living with epilepsy and is working through Midwest advocacy groups to help others living with the disorder. While anchoring the news, Susan Carlson suffered a seizure live on-the-air.
