ACTION ALERT! Support Clean Energy Jobs
Date: February 23, 2018
To: All League Members and Oregonians
From: Norman Turrill, LWVOR President
Claudia Keith, LWVOR Climate Change Portfolio
This legislation will establish a program to cap climate pollution, price all qualified greenhouse gas emissions under the cap, and invest the proceeds in clean energy, while addressing the needs of vulnerable communities and investing in training workers for new, growing opportunities in a clean energy economy.
The House Bill timeline recently changed. On Feb 20 an amendment (-12) was introduced by House Speaker Tina Kotek, that would Cap Greenhouse Gas Emissions legislation this session and would allow the trade and invest details to be addressed next session. Details in a Portland Tribune article or OLIS.
The League asks that you let your legislator know the urgent need to address meaningful Climate policy is now.
ACTION NEEDED, we need you to contact your legislators!
Visit your legislators in the next week. If that’s not possible then make a phone call and or write a personal email or letter. You can find your legislators’ contact information here.
