Echoes of spring are accompanying the lingering tail of news from last week’s special election.

And the idea of a bike tax has been floated in Portland.
Fridays, we talk politics with Bill and Jeff. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian.
