  • 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.
