Episode 189: The legislative shakeup arrives early this year

Welcome to episode 189 of the Extra Credit podcast.

The 2020 legislative session is still a month away, but two prominent lawmakers announced their departures this week. First, Senate Eduction Committee Chairman Dean Mortimer announced he will not seek re-election in 2020. Then, House Minority Leader Mat Erpelding resigned from the Legislature to take another job, meaning he will not serve in the 2020 session at all.

Be sure to check back next week for another new edition of Extra Credit. Our Dec. 13 episode will include a special sneak preview of co-host Kevin Richert’s in-depth literacy series.
