Oregon legislators will vote on the Clean Energy Jobs Bill during its short legislative session this February. The bill, if passed, will set up a cap and invest program designed to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. The Climate Action Reserve is hosting a discussion of the latest draft of this watershed legislation. The webinar will provide a broad overview of SB1070, highlighting the role of offsets and implications for linking with California’s cap and trade program. Also discussed, the efforts of the Agriculture, Forest, Fisheries, Rural Communities, and Tribes Work Group, which informed the design of the cap and invest program. Additionally, the webinar will focus on economic development opportunities for rural and tribal communities as well as opportunities for forest and grassland offset project types in Oregon.
