2019: Time to clean up diesel
2019 is the time to invest in a cleaner, healthier future for all Oregonians

Years ago, Oregon set a goal of reducing diesel pollution to meet the state’s health benchmark. Today, we are only 2% of the way towards achieving our goal.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Vastly cleaner engines have been available for a decade. It’s time to get serious about addressing dirty diesel.
