The 2023 legislative session is underway, and a LOT of interesting Bills have been introduced.
Speaking from experience I think the legislative process can be pretty daunting and somewhat byzantine if you’re not already familiar with it.
So I wanted to make an episode to help folks understand some of the most important climate, forestry, and conservation focused bills that have been introduced, and how to meaningfully engage with the process
To help me unpack what we should all be paying attention to this session, I’m very happy to be joined by Catherine Thomasson.
Catherine is a retired physician, former executive director for Physicians for Social Responsibility, the current lobby coordinator for the Metro Climate Action team, and a lot more.
Before we get started, I want to encourage you to share this podcast with your friends, and leave us a rating and review on your podcast app. I have ambitious plans for this year’s shows, and we need your help to spread the word.
I also love hearing feedback, guest ideas, or anything else! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and our website is simply coastrange.org.
