Think Out Loud

News Roundtable: November 1, 2013

It’s Friday and it’s time for our news roundtable, where we take a look at some of the biggest stories of the week with a rotating panel of journalists.

This week our discussion topics include:

  • The regional carbon plan signed by the governors of Oregon, Washington, and California, and the premier of British Columbia
  • Portland State University’s four-year graduation guarantee to freshmen who declare their majors early and earn 45 credits a year
  • Several potentially competing approaches to legalizing pot in Oregon in 2014
  • Next week’s elections, including an expensive campaign over whether to label genetically engineered foods in Washington
