OPB | June 20, 2013 12:15 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 11, 2013 12:59 a.m.

We’re a day early with our regular news roundtable, our chance to review the big news of the week with a panel of journalists, editors and news watchers.

This week, our discussion topics include:

  • Negotiations in Salem over the education budget
  • The Army Corps of Engineers’ decision not to investigate the effect coal terminals would have on climate change or the region as a whole in its approval process
  • The push by a majority of Washington’s congressional delegation for the federal government not to prosecute Washingtonians who buy or sell marijuana under the state’s new law.
  • The Oregon Supreme Court upholding Gov. John Kitzhaber’s right to block the execution of Gary Haugen.
