The Oregon legislature kicked off its 2022 session on Tuesday. Over the next five weeks, lawmakers will meet in Salem to hash out issues that supporters say can’t wait until the full-length session next year. KLCC’s Chris Lehman spoke with KLCC's All Things Considered host Angela Kellner about the first week of session, and what's on the horizon for the next few weeks.
