Oregon’s Democratic leadership has committed to passing legislation in 2019 to cap greenhouse gas emissions and invest hundreds of millions in clean energy jobs.
“I’ve told everybody, we’re going to do this in ’19 or don’t bother coming,” said Senate President Peter Courtney, D-Salem.
One reason the bills failed in the 2018 session was time. It was a short session. It’s difficult to ram through such game-changing legislation in a hurry.
