Oregon Clean Energy Jobs Bill (HB 2020) HB 2020 has moved from the Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction to the Joint Committee on Ways and Means where it was voted to the House floor with a Do Pass recommendation. Years of work by many legislators, work groups and advocates have brought the bill to this point. It is still under siege by industry interests, especially now that it is so close to passage. Keep on contacting your legislators. Tell them it’s time to have a strong, comprehensive climate program in Oregon.

We Say No Way, is burning trash to make electricity a source of renewable energy. Yet SB 451 makes this claim and an amended version has passed out of committees, ready for a vote on the Senate floor. The Covanta/Marion incinerator in Marion County, a few miles north of Salem is the only waste-to-energy incinerator in Oregon. It is the largest single source of climate change emissions in Marion County as well as a source of other toxic emissions. It should not be eligible for Renewable Energy Certificates under SB 451.
Don’t Greenwash Trash – No on SB 451
