From left to right, Washington state Senators Rebecca Saldana, D-Seattle, Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle, Emily Randall, D-Bremerton, and Joe Nguyen, D-White Center, confer on the floor of the Senate, Monday, Jan. 10, 2022, at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash., just after adjournment for the day. Lawmakers started the new legislative session Monday during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and much of their work will be done remotely as leaders try to limit the possibility of exposure.

It’s day two of the 2022 legislative session, and Gov. Jay Inslee is delivering his State of the State address. But instead of speaking to a packed joint session of the Legislature, it will be a mostly virtual event.

Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins joined Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick to talk about what to expect during the 60-day legislative session.
