October 21, 2013

Host Steve Walsh looks at why Indiana’s share of the Tobacco Settlement is set to drop dramatically, and why it may drop even more in the coming years. How it will  it do to the state budget and efforts to curb tobacco use in the state.

After Illinois’ decision to move ahead with the Illiana Expressway we talk to a supporter in Indiana about what’s next for the process and whether any of the same concerns may resurface on this side of the state line.

We also look at Porter County’s rising heroin problem and revisit BR Lane’s tenure at the Gary Chicago International Airport.

Guests include:

Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris

Don Koliboski,  director of economic development, for the Northwest Indiana Forum

Rep. Charlie Brown, D-Gary.
