Capitol Coverage

The Oregon Legislature is 75 percent of the way through its short February session. This last crucial week will bring key decisions about the budget, Governor Kitzhaber’s healthcare and education priorities and a slew of other issues on the table. With tensions running high, election year politics seem to be gumming up the works a bit. According to The Oregonian, the governor’s legislative priorities are caught up in a partisan fight as lawmakers get ready to start campaigning once they leave Salem. They expect to drop the final gavels Feb. 29.

Reporters Chris Lehman and Michelle Cole have been scurrying around the Capitol from committee meetings to floor sessions, covering this short legislative session. They’ll join us to share their observations.
