Regionally Speaking, Monday, January 16, 2017
Today: “Indiana Gaming Insight” newsletter editor Ed Feigenbaum talks about the latest casino revenues report from the Indiana Gaming Commission — how the northwest Indiana casino boats did last month and last year — and a look at revenue-related issues before the General Assembly and how they will fit into Governor Eric Holcomb’s first State of the State address on Tuesday. You can hear that address on Lakeshore Public Radio.
Lakeshore Public Radio’s Steven Lattimore has a report on last week’s “Whiting 41” rally outside a courthouse in Hammond, and Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Nick Janzen reports on why residents in a lead-contaminated East Chicago neighborhood want a larger role in the cleanup process.
Indiana Chamber president Kevin Brinegar also joins us to talk about the issues before the state legislature that affect the Hoosier State economy, including the long-range plans for transportation funding.
