If he runs for president, Governor Jay Inslee will not be taking donations from the fossil fuel industry. Is that relevant yet? Only time will tell. Inslee spoke with Bill Radke about issues closer to home, including his newly announced healthcare policy and the orca taskforce.

Sarah Kliff on Governor Inslee's health care proposal

Today, Governor Inslee proposed a public option for health insurance, contracted by the government. Vox reporter Sarah Kliff joined us to put the proposal in context against other state and national initiatives.
