On this edition of River to River, while Iowa lawmakers work on closing a budget deal that would end this year’s session, we learn about what other statehouses around the Midwest have been tackling this year.

Host Ben Kieffer talks with statehouse reporters and hosts from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Missouri, where allegations of sexual assault and blackmail against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens have dominated the political landscape.

Guests include: Joyce Russell, IPR statehouse correspondent; Brian Ellison, host of Statehouse Blend Missouri and news contributor at KCUR; Brian Bakst, capital correspondent for Minnesota Public Radio; Shawn Johnson, Wisconsin Public Radio Capital Bureau Chief; and Brent Martin, news director at Nebraska Radio Network.
