Leading the program this week, the news staff talks about anticipation of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act and implications for Arkansas. 

Several stories about the state's prisons also made news this week. A report said the prison population is growing faster than any other state in the nation, an opinion from the Arkansas Supreme Court means many inmates sentenced to life for crimes committed as juveniles may need to be re-sentenced and efforts to address mental health and sexual assault behind bars.

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.

On KUAR's week-in-review podcast, the news staff discusses flooding along the Arkansas and Red rivers, a natural gas pipeline rupture, a Republican state lawmaker shifting to independent, the latest on the creation of the Jacksonville/ North Pulaski County School District and tour Robinson Auditorium, which is nearing the halfway point of a nearly $70 million renovation.
