On last month’s conversation with Purdue President Mitch Daniels, we chatted about the way the school is now tracking incidents involving electric scooters and motorized skateboards. Now, the school has convened a task force to determine whether new rules need to be made regarding their use – to keep both riders and drivers safer.

We cover that on this edition of WBAA’s Monthly Conversation with Mitch Daniels, as well as how the school’s interest in bulking up its contracts with global defense companies aligns with a newly-announced directive by Governor Eric Holcomb to triple the number of federal dollars coming to Indiana for defense.

And we get a view of what the president thinks he’ll remember about 2019 and ask him what issues he’s watching in the 2020 Indiana General Assembly session.
