A Look Back At Oregon's Action-Packed Legislative Session
Oregon's odd-year legislative sessions are always a combination of marathon and sprint, but this year's was exceptional.
Legislators came into the session expecting to have to make deep cuts to state services. Instead, infusions of federal cash combined with higher-than-expected tax revenues gave House and Senate a huge amount of money to work with. The budget adopted was more than ten percent higher than what the governor had requested.
We bring groups of Southern Oregon legislators, split between parties, to offer a look back at the session.
Rep. Kim Wallan, Republican Representative of Medford, joins us to offer analysis of the 2021 session.
