Cap the Gases is our statewide climate legislation campaign. We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at First United Methodist Church (1376 Olive St) 5:30-6:30 pm in the meeting room next to lobby office.
We are currently working to pass SB1530 (LC 19),which would create a statewide emissions cap for greenhouse gas emitters and require them to acquire credits for each ton of gas emitted. While the bill is a watered-down version of 2019’s HB 2020, we believe we need to set a precedent for further action by passing climate legislation this session. Please demonstrate your support for this bill by sending 2-3 sentences to [email protected] The number of positive or negative submissions are quoted in the press as proof of how many Oregonians support climate legislation. We will be gathering signatures throughout late February and in March for Petitions #48 and #49 for Clean Electricity and #50 for zero emissions from fossil fuels and industry by 2050.
