2018 Oregon Legislative Roundup

While the Oregon legislature didn’t pass the Clean Energy Jobs bill this year, we are incredibly well-positioned to pass the policy to reduce climate pollution and accelerate the state's transition to clean energy in 2019. 

Just. Do it.

The impacts of fossil fuels are not just environmentally catastrophic, they’re deeply inequitable. Those who do the least to cause climate disruption are hit hardest by it. To break free from fossil fuels, we need strategies that deliver effective, affordable solutions and economic opportunity for all.

AAA Gets a Triple "F" on Climate Policy

The end of Oregon’s 2019 legislative session exposed some of the egregious corporate lobbying in Salem that blocks climate action – sometimes in public, but many times behind the scenes in the halls of the State Capitol.
