The Republican boycott of climate legislation continues in Salem. We get an update and analysis on the situation that has brought national attention to Oregon. 

We also learn more about an ordinance in Eugene that would clarify rules around planting strips on sidewalks and give businesses tools to prevent people from loitering and camping on them. We also discuss a new study on climate change and how fire officials seek to educate the public on the dangers of wildfire.
