#DamienTalks Episode 18 – Melanie Curry on the Recently-Ended Legislative Session
Today, #DamienTalks with Melanie Curry, the editor of a boutique news website known as Streetsblog California. Melanie has been covering the legislature for two full sessions, with a focus on transportation, urban design, and public health.
Not surprisingly, we’re talking about the just-completed legislative session, the bills that passed, and the inability of the legislature to come together over a funding plan to fix the state’s transportation funding crisis.
We also have a couple of side bars. Some are goofy. Some are serious. It is a fun and informative interview–what you would expect when two friends get together to talk politics.
Because we end up talking more about “what’s next” rather than “what happened” you should read yesterday’s legislative wrap-up for the just completed session if you haven’t yet. It’s both informative and provides some background to what we’re talking about in the podcast.
