IndyMatters Episode 153: Higher education ballot question and improving rural public defense
September 11, 2020

This week on IndyMatters, reporter Megan Messerly has a COVID-19 update for the listeners, and then reporter and producer Jacob Solis has a breakdown of ballot question 1, which tackles the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents and their place in the Constitution. After that, reporter Michelle Rindels talks with former federal public defender Franny Forsman about a shortage of attorneys in rural Nevada for people who can’t afford a lawyer. At the end of the show we have part of a discussion between The Indy’s DC correspondent Humberto Sanchez and host Joey Lovato from our new Facebook live series, which is something we’ll be doing regularly on a variety of topics.
