Rep. Nima Kulkarni, UK’s Big Grant, Polling Update, & KY’s Hepatitis A Outbreak

April 24, 2019

This week, Rep. Nima Kulkarni joins us to talk about her experience during the 2019 General Assembly.  She talked to us at length about what she's learned about getting bills moving as part of a super-minority, and what it's meant to her to be "adopted" as part of the Black Legislative caucus.

Before speaking with her, Jazmin told us about a massive grant the University of Kentucky has received to study opioid overdoses, and gives us an update on the (internal) polls being released by candidates for Governor.  Robert explains the Hepatitis A outbreak in Kentucky -- it's the worst outbreak in the 21st century in the United States, and could have been prevented with a better response.
