Rally at Oregon State Capitol

Oregon’s 2022 short legislative session is drawing to a close. While short sessions, which happen during even years, often focus on budgets, unfinished business, and a limited set of new policy ideas, this year is different. Numerous bills have been introduced and are now making their way through the legislative process that address climate, environmental justice, farm worker protections, transportation, protecting the Elliott State Forest, and a number of other vital concerns.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Julia DeGraw, Oregon League of Conservation Voters Coalition Director, about the status of all these bills and what kind of meaningful change we can hope from this session.
