  • We get the lawmaker perspective from Harney County, where armed protesters continue to occupy the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. We’ll talk with Steve Grasty, a Harney County Judge (which is what they call their county commissioners)
  • Reporter Austin Jenkins gives us a preview of the Washington legislative session that starts Monday.
  • Brent Walth joins us from the University of Oregon campus where he now teaches journalism. He’s written about the history of measures affecting immigrants and non-English speakers as well as a possible 2016 ballot measure that would declare English to be the state’s official language.
