Carbon Pricing Policy in Oregon
Senate Bill 1070 (cap-and-trade) was introduced at the end of the last session following previous bill draft revisions. Action is expected during the upcoming short session in February, 2018. Governor Kate Brown has already stated support for the bill and 33 Oregon legislators are also onboard. This is not a new effort.

Business leadership and engagement is critical now, as the legislation is further shaped, to ensure well-developed policy that is good for business & the economy.
