2021 Iowa Legislature Wrap Up

On Midwest Week, several weeks later than expected, the Iowa legislature finally adjourned this year's session - so what did it accomplish in all that time?

Herb Trix's guest is Erin Murphy, Lee Enterprises bureau chief in Des Moines, and his work appears here in the Quad City Times, and Dispatch-Argus.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
