U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plans to visit Wichita later this week for an event about workforce development with Ivanka Trump, an appearance that could raise fellow Republicans' hopes that he'll run for the open U.S. Senate seat in Kansas next year.

If they can close our plant, they can close yours, too. That's the message from workers at three shuttered General Motors factories that didn't get new products under the tentative contract agreement reached last week between GM and the United Auto Workers. The union has been on strike against the company across the U.S. for over six weeks now. Union members are voting this week on a new four-year deal. Approval could end the walkout that has crippled GM's production, costing the company an estimated $2 billion.

Lawrence's not-for-profit community hospital, LMH Health, is eliminating health insurance for some of its employees. By January, about three dozen part-time workers will no longer have access to health insurance through the hospital. In addition, they'll no longer be able to accrue PTO, or paid time off. The hospital is also changing employee retirement benefits. Why? Is the hospital running low on money? CEO Russ Johnson says no. Despite losing money this year, Johnson says LMH Health is on sound financial footing. Listen to KPR's two-part interview to learn more.
