7am hour -- GUEST: Rep. Drew MacEwen, (R-Union) will lead an unusual Legislative call for the 8th Order, it's a request by minority Republicans to end Gov. Inslee's emergency powers regarding the COVID pandemic, MacEwen says the executive's 'emergency powers' clause was designed for a cold war or natural disaster situation not a public health crisis, ending Inslee's emergency powers would allow more counties to open up at their own pace; the appalling and galling story of a KVI listener who was caught up in the WA unemployment hacking scam last year, how the WA ESD kept paying the fraudulent claim for 6-months after the agency was notified (by the KVI listener) that it was fraudulent, new crime stats from cities that "defunded police".
