Host Geoff Norcross talks with OPB Political Analyst Bill Lunch, news director Anna Griffin and reporter Rob Manning about the political consequences of the discovery of lead in the drinking water at Portland Public Schools.

We also examine the lawsuit filed by nine Oregon counties over the state’s paid sick leave law. And we’ll also take up the failure by the city of Portland to recoup costs from presidential candidates visiting the Rose City.

Our “That’s So Oregon” segment includes a lawmaker who was fined for polluting the air inside the capitol.
