Clean Energy Jobs bill summary shows strong collaboration

PORTLAND – New details of the Clean Energy Jobs bill show the culmination of meaningful and open discussion with Oregon’s stakeholders, who stand to benefit from thousands of new jobs and millions of dollars invested in communities impacted by climate change.

Oregon Environmental Council applauds all our state leaders and Oregonians involved in this process. Today’s summary shows that careful attention has been made to make sure all our communities will benefit from limits on climate pollution,” said Climate Program Director Jana Gastellum. “A newly proposed governance model provides fair representation of urban and rural communities, of those for environmental justice and those in our business sectors. Proceeds will go toward growing a clean energy economy while protecting our lands and forests.”

The summary of updates to the Clean Energy Jobs proposal represents 24 total hours of work group meetings held from September through November between lawmakers and members of the public, rural stakeholders, workers, community groups, utilities, and transportation stakeholders.
