We keep hearing about how the federal government is rolling back climate policies. To counteract that, more and more Democratic governors are pushing proposals at the state level to address climate change.

This week on “OPB Politics Now,” we’ll discuss the policies both Oregon and Washington are considering to tackle climate change at the state level.

OPB political reporter Lauren Dake talks with Cassandra Profita, an EarthFix reporter for OPB; Austin Jenkins, Olympia correspondent for the Northwest News Network; and Jeff Mapes, OPB’s senior political reporter.
