News Buzz: Recapping the Week at the Statehouse, Ringsted Graduating Class of 1957 Beats the Odds

Mar 9, 2018

There has been lots of movement at the Iowa Statehouse this week. An omnibus energy bill that discussed earlier this week on River to River passed in the Senate and is now heading to the house. There's also a bill that would make it so the Iowa Supreme Court would require a super majority to vote a law unconstitutional that remains a live wire.

During this hour of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with Iowa Public Radio's Joyce Russell and the Des Moines Register's Bill Petroski about what you need to know this week about what the legislature is doing. 

We also check in with IPR's Katarina Sostaric, Amie Steffen with the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, Del Matheson whose graduating class is hosting its 60 year reunion this fall with all graduating classmates still alive and planning on attending. To end the hour, Donald Lewis, an entomologist with Iowa State University, and Mark Simmet, host of Studio One tracks join the show.
