Two big stories lead this week's podcast: a task force agrees with Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson's push for changes to the state's Medicaid expansion plan and a look at how the state's congressional delegation voted on an omnibus bill funding the federal government through next September.
We also discuss a visit to Arkansas this coming week by Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who is building momentum in his campaign, while former Gov. Mike Huckabee loses a key staffer and seems stagnant.
A look at the future of the Pulaski County Special School District, an effort for the community Little Italy to become its own town and a grant will begin efforts to restore the state's second oldest bridge still standing.
