CLIMATE LEGISLATION IS OUR TOP ISSUE
Date: February 21, 2020
To: All League Members and Oregonians
From: Rebecca Gladstone, LWVOR President
Julie Chapman and Claudia Keith, Climate Portfolio
WE NEED SUPPORTERS IN THE CAPITOL DAILY THESE NEXT TWO WEEKS
We want to be in the halls, in the House and Senate chambers, and in our legislators’ offices – making sure they know how important it is to pass climate legislation in 2020.
The Oregon Greenhouse Gas Initiative (SB 1530 and HB 4167 – identical bills) is broadly supported throughout the state. Thousands have submitted testimony and published opinion pieces, from public health providers, to your League. We recognize the urgency to address this Climate Crisis.
If you have legislators who might walkout over the climate bill, please contact them immediately to let them know how important it is to you that they remain to vote.
PLEASE JOIN US DURING THE NEXT WEEKS IN SALEM! WE WILL MAKE SURE LEGISLATORS KNOW WE ARE COUNTING ON THEM TO VOTE!
Because schedules shift daily (even hourly now!), we encourage you to sign up for “Get Involved” updates from Renew Oregon, for the most up-to-date information on what is happening in the capitol. We rely on Renew Oregon, the large coalition LWVOR works with on climate legislation.
