Red State Blue State and the State of Bipartisanship


On this West Virginia Morning, something unusual happened last month: Congress passed an opioid law — and did it with overwhelming bipartisan support … in both chambers. It was a broad, $8 billion bill that expands access to health services and recovery centers. So it looks like addressing the opioid epidemic is one thing Democrats and Republicans can agree on. And that’s the topic of this week’s Red State, Blue State — our weekly chat between Cherry Glazer of KCRW in California and West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s Trey Kay.

Also on today’s show, West Virginia University’s College of Law hosted a climate change communication symposium this weekend. Brittany Patterson reports.
