As national leaders fiddle, governors on the West Coast are leading the charge on a host of critical national issues. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown discuss the importance of state action on climate change, immigration and minimum wage — and talk about the limits of what we can do without help from the “other Washington.” This session is a co-production of Crosscut and Seattle University’s Institute of Public Service.
