Carbon reduction committee energizes the Clean Energy Jobs bill toward passage

Members approved HB 2020, bill moves to Ways and Means

PORTLAND — Members of the Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction approved the Clean Energy Jobs bill, HB 2020, Friday afternoon – signaling Oregon’s progress toward becoming the second state in the nation to adopt an economy wide cap-and-invest program to reduce harmful climate pollution.

“The climate crisis is real and every meaningful action matters. Oregon lawmakers are poised to make history with passage of the Clean Energy Jobs bill,” said Jana Gastellum, Oregon Environmental Council Climate Program Director.  “We’ve seen this session—and over the last many years—that young people, farmers, business leaders, scientists, workers, environmentalists, utilities, academics, parents and local elected officials throughout Oregon have spoken in unison. It’s time to act.”

Oregon Environmental Council thanks all who have participated in the process, including lawmakers who continue to fight for bold climate action. As the bill moves on to the Ways and Means Committee, we look forward to working with lawmakers, our partners, and members of the public on the Clean Energy Jobs bill.
