Interview with Christine Gregoire

Governor Christine Gregoire joins us in the studio for a newsmaker interview about her decision to propose legislation that would legalize gay marriage in Washington state. Does this bill have a chance of passing in the upcoming legislative session?

About The Episode

Just days after announcing her support of gay marriage, we talk with Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire about the upcoming legislative session that begins on Monday, January 9th. After a special session with little progress, what are her expectations of lawmakers as they deal with a $1.4 billion dollar revenue shortfall? Will she continue to push for a half percent increase in the state sales tax? What are the chances of her newly proposed gay marriage bill passing? Plus, our Insiders Roundtable shares their perspective on the session and the new legislative and congressional boundaries created by the Washington State Redistricting Commission.
