Plain Talk Podcast: Shouldn’t universities exist because we need them, and not because of the law?

On this episode of Plain Talk, legislation proposed in Bismarck would remove mandates for eight of North Dakota's 11 institutions of higher education from the state constitution. The Grand Forks Herald, in an editorial, argues this puts those universities at risk. But shouldn't universities exist because they're needed, and not because they're mandated by law?

Also state Senator Nicole Poolman (R-Bismarck) talks about her bill to expand North Dakota's school anti-bullying policies to social media situations outside of school.
