Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network: NPR Illinois’ Statewide (August 17, 2019)

Former Illinois congressman Paul Findley passed away this month. He was 98. Findley served 22 years in the U.S. House. We look back at his career – his successes and controversies.

Also, this week we find out why some say a new requirement that students participate in active shooter drills could be doing more harm than good.

And, a group of students in western Illinois are getting involved to get improvements made on a dangerous stretch of highway.

That and more on this episode of Statewide.

Revised live broadcast from August 17, 2019 on the Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network, online at heartlandnewsfeed.com, Spreaker and other platforms.
