Governor Brown praised Lane County’s excellence in “brews, brains and lumber” in her address to the City Club Friday afternoon. She presented goals for this year’s 35-day legislative session, which begins February 3rd.
The Governor’s two priorities for the session are addressing climate change and the threat of wildfires. To build buy-in from Republicans, who left Oregon last year to protest the cap and trade legislation, she toured the state. Brown says, “We took their concerns and made modifications in the bill. Two arenas, number one transportation, secondly manufacturing.”
