On this episode of River to River, IPR’s Natalie Krebs talks about the efforts to address vaccine hesitancy across the state. Katarina Sostaric tells us about the debates at the Iowa statehouse as the session draws to a close. And Kassidy Arena has a remembrance of a Midwest public radio journalist, Aviva Okeson-Haberman, of KCUR in Kansas City, MO, who was killed by an apparent stray bullet. She was 24.

Katie Piekes also joins the program to describe the U.S. Supreme Court case involving the Renewable Fuel Standard and what that might mean for Iowa’s biofuels industry. Then, Ryan Foley from The Associated Press explains why Iowa moved nearly 300,000 registered voters to inactive status.
