Feb. 2: Lieutenant Governor's Agenda

Air date 02/02/12

Karen Brown hosts Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves in the studio to discuss his recently released legislative agenda. The ex-state treasurer talks about the legislature's priority to balance the budget and reduce the state debt, and he weighs in on looming education reform. He is lobbying for the consolidation of certain public school districts. By saving money in administration costs, he argues, more money can go towards students and teachers.

Dr. Nancy Anderson and Dr. Kristena Gaylor host their weekly Business Break. They interview Craig Hendry from Raise Your Pints, a statewide nonprofit lobbying to weaken legislation surrounding alcohol production.
