As the 2015 Indiana legislative session approaches, education leaders around the state are readying their pitches for a group of lawmakers charged with writing a budget as they sit on a $2 billion dollar surplus – a surplus everyone has suggestions on to spend.

In his monthly conversation with Purdue President Mitch Daniels, WBAA’s Stan Jastrzebski asks if there’s a way to stop the practice of colleges giving money back to the state.

And what does this say about a recent suggestion by even the GOP leadership in the Indiana House that the state consider removing the power of the Indiana governor to essentially line-item veto any spending?

Also on this month's program: how Purdue might respond to an ebola-like outbreak on campus and whether universities in the state can do more to make people vote.
