Host Geoff Norcross talks with OPB Political Analyst Bill Lunch, and OPB reporters Amelia Templeton and Conrad Wilson.

We dig into dueling reports from a Congressional panel about who’s to blame for the notorious failure of the Cover Oregon health insurance enrollment website and get a preview of the brewing fight over a proposed state corporate tax increase, which could be the most contentious item on the November ballot.

We also take up Portland Police Chief Larry O’Dea’s troubles, after he accidentally shot a friend during a hunting trip last month and Washington’s conflicting Democratic caucus and primary results.

We end with our “That’s So Oregon” segment, which this week includes a defense of Portland donuts and a ban on textbooks that appear to question climate change.
