Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have worked and appeared together for the past few years in conjunction with the Presidential Leadership Scholars.

The top local stories this morning from KERA News: Despite their political differences, former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush say they've managed to get along and work together.

The duo shared the stage at The Bush Presidential Center in Dallas last night to celebrate 60 graduates of the Presidential Leadership Scholars program.

The program is a joint effort between their presidential libraries. While the former presidents talked about leadership last night, they did not discuss President Trump.

Other stories this morning:

  • Though North Texas housing are prices up, homebuilders are strapped. They’re short of workers, and changes to national immigration policy have stoked fears that the construction workforce will see further declines.
