The 2019 lawmaking session has just a couple more weeks before legislators pass a new budget and put the finishing touches on a spate of other laws – some of which could affect Greater Lafayette.

For instance: if sports betting is again legalized in Indiana, what does that mean for locals who pay close attention to Purdue?

And what happens if teachers walk off the job because a plan to raise their salaries turns into a net loss for some?

We put those questions to Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski this week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor.

Also, should teachers be shot at by police officers conducting active shooter drills, as happened recently in Monticello? Mayor Roswarski, a former officer himself, weighs in.
