"Tell you're smart Speaker to play News Dog Ate 30 W. CEO For 25 on a spectacular summer's Sunday here in news talking, 30 w. Cco. Larry Jacobs joining US Professor University of Minnesota. We're talking politics. We talked of the national scene that we're going to get a little closer to home. Another especial session. The Legislature will convene and Larry will there be a deal? Because they did it once weren't able to get a deal done. They come back. Police reform a bonding bill. Two of the big items there. Ending bill. Spreading money all over the state will be Republican District on Democratic District look at money, But as you just said, there are few issues that Democrats are really pushing hard. He wants the money for Minneapolis. And the damaged buildings. They want police reform, which is not bonding, but part of Ah, bill that they'd like to get through. Andi think the bargaining is pretty intense. I'm hearing that it's a good faith. And so I do think there's a chance and probably likely chance will strike an agreement. But here's the caveat. Both parties were looking at November. And making projections about who's gonna have control the Legislature, and it may be the case that the Democrats I'd rather have an issue to use against Republicans in the fall and the expectation That the swing against Republicans that President Trump will give the Democrats complete control of the House and Senate. Which would mean they would have control the governor's spot and the state health. They could do what they want. Will Republicans concede enough and will Democrats say you're not giving up enough? We're going to take this. The voters. In the fall in expectation will be in the majority in the state House. And the Republicans certainly have. Ah, a nar gye mint to take to voters about this concept of de funding the police and the the word I know. It is probably a better word to describe that. But I have a feeling that that that will be one of those issues that that Republicans they're going to take to the voters and say, Wait a minute they're talking about D'you funding the police in Minneapolis. How dare the D f l and, and that's something that they're certain to use in November. Yahoo! Sure there. A lot of DFL er's were gnashing their teeth because the governor and the legislative leadership On the in the D F l made it very clear that not be funding the police, not dismantling the police. They're reforming it by changing the review process of police violent episodes. Training and a number of other steps. But in Minneapolis, the DFL control over that city they are pushing For a pretty significant reform or maybe even a spanned link. Of the police force a zoo way to move to a different type of public safety. Of course, the violence of Minneapolis sword On Republican. See, this is a great issue. And it's not gonna matter that the state Democrats have said We're not going there. This is a bad idea. The Republicans, they're goingto hanging around their necks. In those clothes, suburban races throughout Greater Minnesota. Um and think that they can have a shot. Here's the big question, though. With President Trump a TTE this point at least Uh, plummeting in the polls. Will voters simply cast a straight ballot against Republicans? And even though the Minnesota Republicans have an argument to make, will voters punish them because of President Trump? That's the big question heading into the fall. One of the other items that Senate Majority Leader Paul goes, Elka has really talked a great deal about and has been able to rally the party behind him. Is that the the governor's emergency powers have gone too far and that that figures to be and I'm sure is smack dab in the middle of these negotiations to get bonding done. Potentially get some sort of police reform bill to the governor. That's got to be part of it. It is, and I'd be surprised if the governor gave it up on many of these issues. The governor is actually conceded to Republicans their demands. He has opened things up on many of the areas that Republicans wanted. But the governor wants to keep that emergency power in case we see a flare up as we're seeing a Texas and Florida and elsewhere And as you look into the fall, there are something It will be a second wave is going to coincide in Minnesota with the flu and well at that point when we need the governor's emergency powers. So I be surprised of the governor gave it up. Um, I think he's goingto say, let's make it the only other issues. And trust me on this. I'm listening to you. All right. Well, always good to visit with you, Larry. Ah, pleasure and enjoy the day and hopefully we can visit again soon. Very good. Thank you very much for having me. Right there. He is.

Phase 3 in Louisiana put off amid coronavirus spike
"The country states are trying to balance public health and safety with the economic impact of lockdowns. The push and pull is being felt nationwide, but especially in some states that are now rethinking the reopening timetables summit arise and Corona. Virus cases one of them. Is Louisiana one of the hardest hit states in the nation? Early on in the pandemic, the state had begun reopening, but is now hitting. Pause on those plans joining me now with more details as reporter Scott Calvert. Scott before we talk about the fight to reopen, let's backtrack to the early days of the pandemic. Louisiana was one of the worst hit states in the country. That's right. Yeah I mean in late, March and early April the number of cases and the death toll in Louisiana, particularly in the new, Orleans area was just enormous, and at one point Louisiana rather was second only to new. New York state in per capita deaths, and there were two parishes which are the equivalent of counties in Louisiana that had the highest number of deaths per capita nationwide, so it was. It was really bad, so we've seen cases. Go down in some of the places that were hit hard early on like new. York New Jersey, but that hasn't been the case in Louisiana. Why not? Well. The governor on Bel Edwards basically says that people have not been good about doing things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing and staying home. They're sick. That sort of thing and it's really interesting because you know in in Louisiana their numbers basically peaked in mid April, and you started seeing this sort of steady decline in hospitalization and things like that and they really thought that things were going to keep getting better and they did. Did until mid June so just a couple of weeks ago, and then it started getting up again, and it's been doing that ever since the last two plus weeks the number of cases has been rising number of hospitalizations are on the upswing, and you know the the governor says it's really really boils down to people, not doing those things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing as the state has started to open up again. No amid arise in cases in several states, especially in the south and western United States. We've seen some areas, rollback or pause plans to reopen, but there is a fight going on in Louisiana over the reopening. What's happening? Right so Louisiana entered phased to in their lexicon back in on June the fifth and what that did is that allowed restaurants and gyms and hair salons, a lot of other businesses to operate at fifty percent capacity, and before that they have been at twenty five percent capacity. So what happened is early last week Governor Edwards said look. I'm going to pause us in phase two for another four weeks rather than go to the next phase of of reopening, and he said that he was doing that because the numbers weren't looking good, because the cases were up and so forth. Forth, and so he thought it prudent to pause where they were to try to drive those numbers down, and the issue is there are a number of Republican lawmakers in the State House of Representatives. Who would like to take away his authority governors to to operate the state of emergency? Because basically what they want to do is to allow local jurisdictions. Perish isn't cities to decide how open or not, the local economies should be, and they make a number of arguments. I mean one is that the hospital system in Louisiana is nowhere near being overwhelmed, which was a very real concern. Concern a couple of months ago, they also point out that you know. There's variations in terms of how badly affected certain parts of the state are, and they also point out that a lot of younger adults are are driving these increases in in case numbers, and that you know for the most part younger people people in their twenties say do pretty well clinically in terms of the virus, Cova Nineteen and that essentially, it's time to to open up the state more than it is. Because a lot of businesses are are really hurting in many ways. It seems like the challenges several. Several states are facing and that we've been talking about for the last several weeks. Balancing Public Health and safety concerns with economic concerns and the challenges, especially for small businesses that aren't able to stay open. That's right and one of the interesting dynamics there in Louisiana is you know. I talked to the head of the Baton Rouge area. Chamber of Commerce and they don't support this effort to override the governor's state of emergency, which is basically a petition drive in the House of Representatives and one of the reasons why they don't is because. They told me that they think that. They're satisfied with the path that they're on the way. The governor is handling this, but one of the real concerns I think is that if the number of cases keeps rising and in the state, decide that needs to take more drastic action. They're worried about restrictions being reimposed and rolling back to say phase one when they could only open at twenty five percent, and so they really don't WanNa. Go backwards and they're. They're not thrilled probably with with being at half capacity, but they'd rather do that. And I think a lot of businesses are able to more or less deal with that environment, rather than than go back to a situation where either they have to have a lower capacity or close altogether. And what is the governor saying about the petition effort? Governor Edwards has said he doesn't think this effort is going to succeed. But he also described it as irresponsible to the point of being asinine, and he thinks it just sends the wrong message to the residents of Louisiana at a time when they really are trying to encourage people to wear mouse, and be socially distant and things like that, and he also says that if that were to succeed in Louisiana would be the only state other than Wisconsin without a statewide order. At this point, the only reason Wisconsin doesn't have one. Is that the State Supreme? Court there overturned the Wisconsin border?

W. as Mike in order reports the Philadelphia school district transports not only its own students but state law requires the district to transport students to one hundred twenty three charter and four hundred forty non public schools within ten miles of the city the covert reopening plans of many of those schools may include staggered schedules and fewer students on buses for social distancing and that creates a logistical and financial mountain for Philadelphia says the district's chief of schools Evelyn Nunez she told the state house Education Committee but to maintain the status quo the district would have to triple its capacity it will be challenging if not impossible for us to comply with state mandated transportation requirements she says the district is proposing a tiered transportation schedule but that would require the cooperation of the other schools she called on the legislature to either provide more transportation aid or to relax the requirement that districts transports students up to ten miles outside of their
Masks have become a partisan issue
"Earlier today. The vice president united. States Mike Pence stopped by diner in Pennsylvania typical campaign, fair and video that event was shown on TV and their other than a secret service guide appears in the back and later a waitress. Almost nobody is wearing masks as far as I can tell no one, certainly not these supposed head of the corona virus taskforce. You remember that. That and that might seem like a small thing especially to anyone who managed to convince themselves, and you'll want to really have to worry about the virus. The reality is that the virus is still here. It's still killing people every day and the more we learn, the more we know, that close sustained indoor proximity without masks like what they're doing in. The diner brings with it a high risk of transmission. Seems the more we learn, the more we learn, that masks matter a lot in many of the countries that are managed to control the virus like Taiwan pretty much. Everyone wears masks. In fact just this week. A British study found that widespread mask-wearing could prevent covid nineteen second waves, not that we're even to the point where we're trying to prevent a second wave here in America. Sadly, we are still squarely in the first wave. We basically plateaued. Twenty thousand cases a day, just under a thousand deaths a day. That is our new devastating normal. We've already lost more than a hundred and fifteen thousand Americans right now. Hospitalizations are surging number of states including Arizona, Tennessee Arkansas South Carolina and Alabama. Two States Oregon Utah have paused their reopening efforts amid spikes. In cases in fact, I'm going to talk the governor of Oregon Kate Brown in just a moment about that to other states with large populations Florida and Texas just reported records for daily highs in new cases, which is particularly striking given that Republicans announced yesterday that Jacksonville Florida is the new alternatively location for the Republican National Convention after officials in Charlotte North, Carolina declared. The event would not be safe there. The safety does not seem to be much of a concern for the President United States amidst the pandemic that is seen one hundred and fifteen thousand people die. Next Week Donald. Trump is as you may have heard holding his first campaign rally since lockdown in where Tulsa Oklahoma, where covid nineteen cases just record daily high. That's right. Officials said the increase has been identified as an outbreak linked to indoor gatherings, okay. The president will be holding his rally at. An indoor arena at the Bank of Oklahoma Center, which just over nineteen thousand people packed in there. As far as we can tell, he's telling his supporters that if they get the corona virus at his rally, it's not his problem in order to attend. They have to agree not to sue Donald Trump if they come to the rally and they catch the coronavirus. At least those people have choice, the president has forced graduating cadets at west point who have been sent home to return to campus, so he can deliver a commencement address tomorrow, which we think will be outdoors, so that's good and can have a photo op with them. At least fifteen of those cadets have already tested positive for the virus. The science here as tentative and unformed as sort of dynamic as it is, suggests our best hope to fight the virus right now. If we want to not have locked down, right, be some version of normal our best hope right now. He's wearing masks, washing hands social, but wearing masks, wearing masks wearing masks. And yet the president and the vice president who extensively want to get the economy back on track and get back to normal, not only refuse to wear them. They have effectively turned wearing masks into a culture where issue and they have stoked this political backlash against those who dare tell us how to stay safe. Here's an example in Orange County California the chief health officer Dr Nicole quick resigned amid backlash and a death threat death threat over in order to wear masks, residents, comparing her to a Nazi and holding protests at her home. This was a scene at Tuesday's Orange County Board of supervisors meeting. I have been discriminated five times in the last two days I have been actually turned away. I cannot go in these businesses without a mask. You're telling me that I have to breathe in c. o two when God gave this body, the ability to extract that from my body, and now you want me to put it back in my body. I have natural rights as a sovereign citizen of the United States by continuing to keep people in masks separated out of work with no legitimate cause. You are kneeling on the next of the people, and you are continuing to act in a thuggish manner. Guys over like really like. You know I mean. Are we talking about this? Kneeling on the next, she compared wearing a mask to killing. George Floyd and it's over. Are we still talking about this? Yeah, we're still talking about it. People are still dying from it, but that's the view of the White House that women's view. It's not just happening in Orange County Ohio Ohio state. There's been a relative success story and containing the virus Republican. Governor Mike DeWine. Has Been a leader on the issue. He credited Dr Acton, who's health rector, the state as a hero for her role, and that included advising government wind lockdown early very early left the state in much better position to reopen. Dr Acton has now resigned amid lawsuits the push by Republicans. And protests at her home where some people conspicuously carried God's. The Guardian reports some demonstrations at the State House featured signs bearing antisemitic messages. That's comparing her Nazi again. Acting as Jewish and one lawmaker referenced her with an anti-semitic Slur. Dr? Amy Acton died her estate through a pandemic and for that she target for Reactionary Idiots. Look it's a complicated world we live in. Complicated time it's not like the experts are all in unison about everything they're not. It's not like this isn't complicated. There have been mixed messages about the virus and transmission about mask-wearing. When they told us not to wear mass February, they were wrong about that and we're still processing data, and they're still all sorts of countervailing balances between different kinds of risks. What we're doing. But we have seen what happens. If there's one thing we know, we've seen what happens across the world. And in this country when leaders just shove their fingers and say I can't hear you corona virus. There's a real danger of politics and political forces overwhelm public health entirely. And we sure as heck should not be punishing health, experts and leaders were crying to help us help ourselves to stay safe and healthy.
Kid Press Conference with Governor Phil Scott
"Peter Hirschfeld Nice to talk with you. Good to talk with you Jane and I have to tell you I'm so excited to hear what questions the kids are going to have the governor today. Yeah me, too. I hope he's prepared. Can you explain just first of all what a reporter is and generally what a reporter does! We have pretty fun jobs. I have to admit because we spend all day learning about things that are happening in our towns in the state in the country, and even the world sometimes, and then we write stories based on what we've learned so that we can get people information that in some cases might be really important to them. In order to do that job, we have to be kind of like collectors of information. And sometimes we collect that information by reading things like government documents for example sometimes we get information by talking to people like legislators or mayors or the governor, people in our communities or sometimes expert who can help us understand different topics that we might not know that much about sometimes we get information just by going to places and watching things like a select board meeting in a local town or going to the State House to watch committees. They're make big decisions. or maybe going to to something like a protest is to learn more about what people are upset about. We have what we call a representative democracy in the united. States in that means we elect people to Serb government, and they make really important decisions about how our society is going to work and reporters tried to do is get people all the information. They needed so that they can decide whether their government is doing a good job. And sometimes when reporter learns about things that maybe aren't going so well. It allows the people who read their stories to. Ask and demand changes and improvements. Can I highlight one word that you said because I to just make sure we're clear on this, you said reporters write stories. This is not the kind of story that is fiction that is made up or not true. What a reporter does has to be based on fact so when you say you write a story, you're writing something that incorporates what you've heard from other people what you know to be true and what you have found out. You're not making things up, and you're not really sharing your opinion. What's the difference between factual reporting and just telling someone what you think about something? Yeah, that's exactly right Jane, so this isn't the kind of story that you would read in a picture book for example or A novel. That is fiction What reporters are doing? Is discovering facts and information, and then just using those facts in that information in the stories that they right so even though we call them stories or not, the kinds of stories you might find. In! Some of the books you read it school. One way I like to think about it is. There's a big difference between I. Think and what I know and reporters stick to telling people what they know. Bar Job is to give the public facts and information so that they can make their own opinions about things. Get an example of something that's happening right now. Governor Scott, who you're going to be talking to assume wants to make some budget cuts next year because Vermont government doesn't have as much money coming in, but a lot of legislators that work in the state. House, don't WanNa make budget cuts because they say there's going to be a lot of people that have a lot of needs and budget got is when you think you have a certain amount of. Of money to spend, but then actually you're only allowed to spend a little less than that. That's right. You don't have as much money as you thought you were going to have so the job of the reporter in telling that story isn't the tell people who's right or wrong. The governor or the legislature. The reporter's job is to collect as much information as possible about their proposals explain to people what those proposals would do and what they would mean. In then explained the potential consequences of those proposals, but then lead up to other people to decide what they think is the right thing to do.

"Vermont state house with Vermont governor, Phil Scott who is a Republican Richard Feldman Philbin. When you hear that moment from the signing ceremony. What does that tell you about the nature of this debate in states across the country? Well, I think in many ways the pro gun community led by the National Rifle Association is somehow cornered itself by its own success. The politics of this issue transcends, the policy of this issue and therein lies so much of the problem in getting this debate focused in a way that we can achieve results that work for everyone. And we can but not when we focus on the politics, but only on the policy, we really have to align. Those two and dealing with the perceptions versus the realities in this society. It's highly unlikely that anyone you are I know directly is going to be shot. It's a statistical thing. But of course, it's gonna make news and we're all in the same boat. When when we see things, Dan and day out, we feel like it's all around us. We deal as human beings with these perceptions. Fizeau long now when the pro gun rights community has gone after something they've often gotten their way. So you end up getting cornered by your own success? I'd like to know what some of your listeners think about these kinds of issues gotta move forward. We've gotten a number of comments about it, particularly from people who do consider themselves. Like the voicemail we played earlier strong. Second amendment supporters Connor tweeden. I consider myself a strong second amendment supporter and firearms. I reside in Kentucky. But I don't understand why it is legal for any adult of any age to purchase a firearm with no prior training of any kind reflecting in Ohio tweeted in Ohio are GOP supermajority. Legislators will not hold a hearing for a proposed red flag Bill. Instead, they are pushing a stand your ground Bill that is expected to pass in lame duck governor casick may veto it. But the super majority is expected to override stand your ground bills. By the way, you probably have heard of these these are laws that say that you have a presumption of legal authority to stand your ground with firearm. If you are attacked in any place that you would otherwise have the legal right to be. Your home a public place that you are allowed to use deadly force in that location. And you do not have a responsibility to flee Chris Brown. I wonder how you would respond to that clip. We heard of governor Scott being heckled at the Vermont state state house. It just seems like the emotions are so high and so hot that there is no way in some states. Among some folks to come up with anything reasonable with anything bipartisan any idea is going to be met with a flat out vehement loud. No. Well there as Richard noted. I I agree with what he said the politics of this issue can often seem to transcends the policy of this issue and that doesn't serve anyone's interests. Well, what we find around. Our issue is a polar ization. But mainly of perception, and there are certain people who believe, and this is really fueled by the the NRA, and it's rhetoric around us. I think more than anything else that any regulation of guns means it's a slippery slope to taking guns away in this country. And it's simply not correct from the very beginning of our country, and we had regulations in place around gun ownership. References made to the wild west. And what that was like, well, actually in most of those towns, you had to check your guns before you even entered the town, there's a rich history and heritage of this that I think among a certain subset of people gets gets distorted, but you know, I go out and talk about this issue all the time, and I have to say most of the responses, I get in audiences that have guns, and many that don't from gun owners is I agree with you. I stand with you. And I agree with Richard. I think the NRA is really boxing itself into an unfortunate corner on this issue. And it's not consistent with what the vast majority of Americans think should happen. I think it's also interesting to note that when you talk about the politics, overcoming the policy of it that things are so polarized in congress at the federal level in Washington that it seems like we're we're very far away. Away from having the kind of discussion on practical solutions that were having in the states. I mean, HOGAN is Republicans Scott's a Republican you have in the states the ability for Democrats and Republicans to come together on some solutions. I'm Joshua Johnson. And you're listening to one A. We should note, by the way. The today's program was produced in partnership with guns and America, a new public media reporting project on the role of guns in American life. You can find out more about this project online at guns and America dot org, by the way, Scott before we move on from bump stocks. Remind us how states did with bump stocks, which ones ban them, which one is allowed them. What's the national picture? Look like, so as we noted earlier, the bump stock that really people began to hear about that after Las Vegas, and since then we now have we've seen ten states that have banned bump stocks. It's a fairly easy thing to do. I think because it's not something it's not going to affect hunters or most gun owners. However, there are concerns about just how effective this might be in states that have passed it a lot of questions, for example, you outlaw bump stocks. And you're basically saying if you have when you gotta turn it in in places that have passed this week. Written about this people are not turning them in. So some question about the effectiveness, but. Well, and there's also the slippery slope argument that has come up with bunk stocks. I mean NPR's morning edition interviewed Michael Hammond last week, he's the legislative council for a group called gun owners of America, which is basically against all gun control. The group is not the NRA. It's a separate group, but it takes similar stances against gun legislation that restricts access to firearms in that interview with morning edition, Michael Hammond said he worried about what he bump stock ban could lead to our question is whether or not this is an effort to go the back door and banned semi-automatic by regulation. Richard shelby. What are you? Making Michaels argument. I know Michael a long time. And I think what he's trying to say is that bump stocks have nothing to do with a semiautomatic. It allows as you correctly identified it earlier in the show, the kinetic energy of the firing the gun to allow it to essentially go up against your finger and fire another round. But without a bump stock, I can do exactly the same thing with my finger. It doesn't make a semi automatic an automatic. Wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. Can you really do exactly the same thing with your finger? I mean having that degree of kinetic energy as opposed to having to rely on your own reaction time. Your ability of your index finger to go flick flick flick flick flick flick that is not the same. It's exactly the same thing finger inside the trigger guard. I can fire that gun just as quickly. Okay. Again, this is one of those issues that well, let's just ban it. I mean, if there was a terrorist incident involving a red Ford, and we said, well, let's ban red Ford true that over time that won't be read Ford's on the street so terrorists couldn't get a red Ford and go into people. That's a very Michael read Ford's are not designed to do mass amounts of damage. I think that's kind of that's that's an apples and oranges. And I'm I'm sorry. I I presume that you and I are of different generations. I don't think that someone who's a twenty two year old assailant versus someone who is you know, in their fifties or sixties or seventies. Both armed with firearms. Have equal capacity to flip their index finger at the same rate. They are not the same. It all depends on your training. But there's not much training involved in using your finger inside a trigger. God his going back and forth. Again, this is feel good legislation. And it really had nothing to do. It was a reaction if it was used in the gun. Let's ban it if the same number of people had been injured, but without the use no one would be talking about banning that device. There are other kinds of devices that have come up in some of this legislation drew in Pittsburgh tweeted, we have smartphones which can open with face recognition or fingerprints. Why can't we apply the same tech to firearms whole no solution is perfect? Although no solution is perfect. I would think it will help per the issue. There are some laws that proposed doing things very similar to that. We'll talk about that and more in just a moment. Stay clubs. Support.
