We’re almost there! The Bill is now before the Ways and Means Committee, the last committee it needs to pass out of. BUT… oil industry lobbyists are trying to do everything to kill our bill.  (Brief background: If it passes, HB 2020 will reduce Oregon emissions 80% by 2050, setting a new gold standard for carbon pricing policies everywhere. HB 2020 recently passed out of a key subcommittee and is closer than ever to passing. Our ceaseless contacting of our elected officials have made this possible. )

If your senator is Lee Beyer or James Manning, and/or your representative is Paul Holvey, they are on this critical committee; so, you will make a huge difference if you could give them a call!

Please take a minute to call them to thank them for supporting HB 2020 and urge them to oppose the “-102 amendment”, which is an oil industry poison pill introduced to destroy the Clean Energy Jobs bill at the last minute.

Senator Manning: 503-986-1707

Senator Beyer: 503-986-1706

Representative Holvey: 503-986-1408
