As local businesses, we recognize a clear and present need for action on climate to protect Oregon’s growing economy, natural assets, and its vibrant communities. We can create a healthy climate and build a strong, more resilient economy by reducing greenhouse gases and investing in clean energy.
Oregon can build on our leadership and join other West Coast jurisdictions in accounting for the cost of climate pollution in our economy, on our health and in our communities. The Clean Energy Jobs bill would help to achieve Oregon’s goal to reduce pollution while creating incentives to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy.
The Clean Energy Jobs Bill can level the playing field for clean energy solutions in Oregon, foster innovation and technological progress, and advance public health. It is the right opportunity for Oregon at the right time. Accordingly, we ask for your vote in support of the Clean Energy Jobs Bill.
