Abortion, vaccine mandates, and redistricting among the issues being addressed in Jefferson City

The Missouri General Assembly has begun the 2022 legislative session with a packed agenda and political infighting already apparent.

Journalists following the statehouse run down the big issues and what’s on the line this session as lawmakers attempt to work through a host of contentious bills.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As Up To Date’s associate producer, I construct daily conversations that give our listeners context to the issues of our time. I strive to provide a platform that holds those in power accountable, while also spotlighting the voices of Kansas City’s creatives and visionaries that may otherwise go unheard.
