The gavel fell and Oregon’s 2014 legislative session came to an official end on Friday. Lawmakers rebalanced the budget and approved $200 million in bond money for Oregon Health and Science University. They also brokered compromises on land use planning and medical marijuana dispensaries. But before the legislature adjourned a few items were stalled out: money for the elusive Columbia River Crossing, bills that would have expanded background checks for guns , and a measure to legalize recreational marijuana.

We’ll hear from three Capitol reporters about how things shook out in the short session.
