Update: Audio from the KUT panel is now streaming online.

Bee was also a part of a KUT panel on Tuesday to discuss the second year of the Affordable Care Act. Other panelists included State Representative John Zerwas (R-Simonton), LBJ School Professor Sam Richardson and Tim Eaton with the Austin American-Statesman.
