The Exchange 02.10.23: Tort reform in the Iowa Legislature; The future of the First-in-the-Nation Iowa Caucuses
This week on The Exchange, we talk with about how Iowa and other states will be ranked in next years presidential nominating season. Iowa has been knocked out of the prime caucus spot after 50 years.
Also, we talk with Sioux City personal injury attorney and former Republican state senator Jim Carlin about the downside of a bill that would cap personal injury awards on medical malpractice cases in Iowa.
Also, how an Iowa mini-grant program administered by the ISU Extension and Outreach service has helped provide fresh produce to families in need of assistance in Iowa. We talk with the organizer of the program and with local administrators in O’Brien and Lyon County in NW Iowa about how they will use their mini-grants.
In honor of Black History Month, we are airing some previous interviews with authors and creative people who celebrate the black experience in America. One of them is Eric Nganyange of Mason City. He is the creator and host of the Iowa Civil Rights Podcast.
