KUAR's Week-In-Review: Common Core, Flooding, Same-Sex Marriage, EPA & Open Carry

Jun 12, 2015

Join the KUAR news staff for a discussion on the top stories of the week.  

On this podcast:  a fight over the first recommendation regarding Common Core educational standards, a judge ruling that Arkansas should recognize same-sex marriages conducted last year, a request for a federal disaster declaration being prepared after flooding along the Arkansas and Red rivers, a request for a formal opinion on the open carry of firearms and a federal appeals court tossing out a challenge of EPA mission standards.

Sabrina McCormick Norton, news director of Texarkana NPR member station KTXK, joins the program this week to discuss damage from flooding in that region of Arkansas.
