It was an eventful week in Salem.
A long investigation into the state Department of Energy ended with a whimper, not a bang.
The prospects also faded for a ban on bisphenol-A , a chemical used in plastics that has gotten a lot of attention this session. And in Portland, the race for mayor next year expanded by one more candidate this week.
It’s Friday, the day we review the week in politics. Our political guys, Bill and Jeff have joined us. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst; he’s at the OSU Media Center. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter and blogger for The Oregonian.
