    https://bosshog.fireside.fm/174

    We talk property taxes, bills came in the mail. Do you have to pay them? Word is you have an extra 60 days, but they kinda need your money now. Jer’s township taxes went up 400% so he went on a hunt for answers. Turns out he got a great deal in 2019.

    We think COVID restrictions might be loosening up a bit...Golf courses are staying open, possibly allowing carts too? Are parks next? How much longer will we keep the economy shut down? We talk about protests or how to communicate with the decision making overlords.

    The big debate is...Do we social distance until there is a vaccine or herd immunity, or just until hospitals can keep up and not be overwhelmed? What did you sign up for?

    Local officials are using Google data of cell phones for policy? Is that what we want?

    President Trump might be pardoning Joe Exotic!?

    Finally, how does this end? When do the restrictions end? And will any policymakers be brave enough to be the first to let go of the restrictions?

    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.
