Legislators in Oregon and Washington promise to clean up their act next year when it comes to combating sexual harassment in their own ranks.  

In the latest episode of “OPB Politics Now,” OPB political reporters Jeff Mapes and Lauren Dake talk to Northwest News Network Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins about what’s changing and whether it will really make a difference.

They also discuss Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and whether he can run for president and for re-election in 2020. It could also be a question facing another Northwest presidential wanna-be, Washington Governor Jay Inslee.
