Rep. Dustin Hite (R-New Sharon), chair of the Iowa House Education Committee,  and Rep. Ras Smith (D-Waterloo), ranking member of the Iowa House Education Committee, talk about the debate over tenure. Following accusations of anti-conservative bias at Regents universities, the House Education Committee passed a bill that would ban tenure, which Smith and others argue would hurt those universities and the state in a variety of ways.
