Introduction

Welcome to The Exchange, I’m Mary Hartnett.  This week, there were major decisions made on the state and local level.  First, we hear about the lawsuit that’s been filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa and Planned Parenthood of the Heartland yesterday.  

The law would effectively ban most abortions after about six weeks into pregnancy. The plaintiffs say the law needs to be struck down as unconstitutional. 

Coming up today on The Exchange, as the political season begins to gear up, we hear from a new presidential candidate who says everyone deserves a basic universal income.

Also, at look at the life changes of Robert Kennedy.  That and more on the Exchange, today at noon, Siouxland Public Media.

Coming up on the Exchange . . .   

House and Senate Republicans are pushing for a massive tax overhaul.  The House plan and the Senate plan both cut taxes substantially.  Republicans say redesigning the state’s individual and business tax rates is needed to bring the Iowa tax code up to date. 

But others are worried that it goes too far, at a time when the state is strapped for funds because of previous tax cuts.
