But that could change in coming weeks as a massive policy bill nears passage and the two chambers negotiate differences in the education budget.

On this edition of Going Public, we talk with Tricia Reinhart, who will be the keynote speaker at this year’s “Power of Women” luncheon to take place next week on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. As a retired, successful sales management executive and an alum of Southeast, she has a lot of wisdom to impart on college students in the community. Tricia will be attending events in the area and on-campus the week preceding the luncheon.
