U.S. Senate

Dan Coats

  Yesterday on Morning Edition we featured the first half of an interview with Republican Senator Dan Coats, which was recorded earlier this week in the WBOI studios.  He talked about foreign policy, including the Iran nuclear deal and the fight against the Islamic State.

Today, we turn to domestic issues. WBOI’s Katy Anderson talked to Sen. Coats about the budget, the presidential primaries, and more.  

The U.S. House passed the farm bill Thursday without including food stamp funding.  Now, Indiana’s U.S. Senators are split on whether the assistance program should remain out of the bill.
