Never mind what’s happening on Capitol Hill.  Oregon’s government is in no danger of shutting down. 

The wheels of lawmaking kept churning in Salem this week.  In fact, Governor Kitzhaber was a prime feature of the machinery, proposing major changes to education and education funding. 

Also, the process of redrawing the political lines in the state begins.  And Washington becomes just a little more Oregon-like. 

We talk politics on Friday mornings. 

Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst, and he’s at the OSU Media Center. 

Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian.  He’s at Portland Community College, about to attend a hearing on redistricting.
