Clean Energy Jobs Hearing
March 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction is holding a series of public hearings on Clean Energy Jobs all throughout the state. On March 2nd, they’re stopping in Bend. This is your perfect opportunity to tell them why you support the Clean Energy Jobs bill.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP here!
This event will be held at Central Oregon Community College, Cascade Hall, Room 246-248.
Even if you don’t plan to speak during the hearing, it’s important to show up! We must demonstrate to our Legislators that there is support for Clean Energy Jobs in Central Oregon.
The Clean Energy Jobs Bill (HB 2020) would cap carbon emissions for large industrial polluters, set a price on each ton of carbon pollution, require large polluters to pay to pollute, and then invest that money into building Oregon’s renewable energy economy. Passing this bill is the most important next step Oregon can take to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. And we have the best opportunity to pass it this year.
For those who do want to testify… There will be an informational prep event on Friday, March 1st, where you can ask questions and get help preparing your testimony.
