    State Representative Tom Saunders joins us for our annual Statehouse update.
    He introduced five bills this year, we discuss each of them. Ranging from a bil that would require governments to offer owned parcels to adjoining residents. A bill that would eliminate straight ticket voting in Indiana (Only 8 states still have it). And a bill that would affect the who can serve on local planning commissions.

    Tom also serves on the Roads and Transportation committee. There is a bill moving through the statehouse that will eliminate all handheld devices starting July 1st. No more texting, talking on handset, using apps, or websites while driving. There is also a possibility of cameras being installed in construction zones to enforce existing laws.

    We also dig into the results of the #RedForEd rally and what steps have been taken to respond to their requests.

    Finally, Indiana second amendment groups have been getting traction following Senator Greg Taylor’s filing of a bill restricting gun sales to those 21 and over, limiting magazines to 10 rounds, and banning bump stops.

  • 144: 21 and over Tobacco - The VICE Episode

    Episode  |  January 3rd, 2020  |  1 hr 16 mins

    Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis are your hosts!

    https://bosshog.fireside.fm/159

    It is a host only episode. Talking about the changes in “vice laws”. Under the cover of impeachment darkness, the federal government snuck changing the tobacco age from 18 to 21 into a “must pass” spending bill. Without real detail, the FDA changed the rules, without grandfathering in those who were already legal. Mason Rottinghaus reports his troubles.

    Illinois just legalized marijuana, Indiana has table games and dealers at the Racinos, including our neighboring Anderson casino. Massive regulation just came down on the vape community, but local mom and pops were carved out.
    Mayor Pete called decriminalizing all drugs. Quite an interesting week for personal liberty.

    Chase Peyton, and Chris Guffey are finally facebook friends, after the NFL Fantasy Football season concluded.

  • 138: What is #RedForEd? No School?

    Episode  |  November 14th, 2019  |  1 hr 16 mins

    Great episode of Boss Hog of Liberty!

    Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis are your hosts!

    https://bosshog.fireside.fm/153

    There is a grassroots movement coming through Indiana. Yard signs have been popping up, schools are going to be closed next week. An event called #RedForEd is happening at the statehouse. More than 500,000 school kids won’t be in class, and over 11,000 educators are expected to be in attendance. The same factors that swept Glenda Ritz into office in 2012 appear to be coming together again.

    We are joined by Jennifer McGowan, currently the Vice President of the local teachers association and 8th grade science teacher at New Castle. Also joining us is Alicia Criswell, extension educator in Wayne County and former public school teacher.

    We discuss the multiple issues with public education in Indiana, not limited to low pay, high stakes testing, federal and state mandates, and more. The question is, what changes do people actually want? And what is possible? Great, open discussion!

    And someone finally explains “E-Learning Days” to Jeremiah
