Indiana lawmakers have revealed their agendas for the 2020 legislative session. Today we outline the issues lawmakers are expected to focus on, including healthcare costs and gun safety measures.

House Speaker-elect Todd Huston will serve alongside retiring House Speaker Brian Bosma this session, and we talk about what new leadership could mean for the Indiana House. 

 

Political writer Adam Wren also joins us to talk about the rise of Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 presidential race. How did Buttigieg go from a relatively unknown mayor in the Midwest to the top of some political polls, and can the momentum behind his campaign be sustained?
