biennial Indiana state budget

Indiana Democratic Party website

Today:  State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the issues coming up in the 2021 General Assembly session -- a session that is not only a biennial budget-writing session but one marked by revenue concerns due to COVID-19.  Tammi Davis with the Gary Sanitary District is also a member of an Indiana advisory committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.  She tells us about an in-depth report on environmental injustice dealing with lead poisoning in Indiana -- a topic of great interest in northwest Indiana. And we have another edition of "Neighborhood Voice" minority business owner conversations from the Legacy Foundation, as Erica Fizer talks to a Hammond cafe owner.

State Senator Karen Tallian talked with us for Wednesday's "Regionally Speaking" about how the 2017 General Assembly session went, in her opinion, and about the major issues which were reviewed and passed on to Gov. Eric Holcomb for his signature -- including major infrastructure like roads and bridges and how to pay for those projects and the two-year Indiana state budget. 

Karen also talks about what may come up in the 2018 session.
