Jefferson Exchange -- December 4, 2012, HOUR 1
Oregon's New House Speaker
The November election changed the power structure in the Oregon state House. The even-steven split between Democrats and Republicans is gone; Democrats have greater numbers and therefore control the chamber. And Tina Kotek will assume the speaker's role, the first openly gay person in the job. Kotek will join us to talk about the challenges facing the house... and her personally.

You'll hear from reps at Northwest Natural Gas and Rogue Valley Clean Cities about the installation, and who gets the benefits from it.
