Indiana has been trying to get a handle on it’s low college graduation rate. Students in Indiana spend more money and graduate more slowly than the average student in the US. We’ll talk to the commissioner for Higher ed about a new program designed to help that.

We’ll also get an update on the environmental bills still moving through the Indiana General Assembly.

Guests include:

Karen Tallian, state senator, D-Portage

Jill Disis, Indianapolis Star

Teresa Lubbers, Indiana commissioner of higher education
