All IN: The Friday Pitch-In

Dec 6, 2019

This week’s Friday Pitch-In kicks off with the news of House Speaker Brian Bosma’s replacement, who was named on Monday. We talk about what the new round of Career and Technical Education funding leaves out, and the details behind two class action lawsuits – one in Franklin, and one hitting a popular agritourism destination.

We also talk with Dr. Bradley Allen, from IU School of Medicine, about his trip to Washington encouraging lawmakers to support the Opioid Workforce Act of 2019. And we hear from the president of the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association about the decline in Indiana Christmas tree farms, despite steady demand for real trees around the holidays.
