Political maneuvering is nothing new in Kansas City, and nowhere has that been more apparent lately than in the failed attempt to get a translational medicine tax established in Jackson County.

On Tuesday's Up to Date, our political pundits discuss where political money goes and the latest in Missouri, Kansas and federal lawmaking. 

Guests:

  • Dave Helling, Kansas City Star political reporter
  • George Connor, professor of political science, Missouri State University

  • Burdett Loomis, professor of political science, University of Kansas

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.
