This Wednesday, State Representatives Duane Stark and Sal Esquivel are holding a town hall in Eagle Point to hear from community members in Oregon Representative District 4 & 6 about state legislative issues you care about. Find out what district you live in here.
The Oregon Clean Energy Jobs Act (Senate Bill 577) would help reduce greenhouse gas pollution that is a major cause of climate change. It could also create thousands of jobs by encouraging investment in cleaner energy sources, greater energy efficiency, and upgrading rural infrastructure threatened by climate change. In addition, it would keep more of the money we spend on energy working for us inside our state, instead of enriching giant out-of-state companies and CEOs.
At the town hall you can help ask Rep. Stark and Rep. Esquivel to support SB 577 and ensure that:
A limit or ‘cap’ is set on climate pollution based on the best available science.
All sectors reduce pollution and pay their fair share when they pollute above the cap.
Proceeds are reinvested into the communities that need them most to help transition to clean energy and prepare for a changing climate.
A fair transition to a clean energy economy leaves no one behind.
