Carbon Emissions Legislation: Rural Impact
Oregon House Bill 2020, a bill with many names and even more opinions.

If you have found yourself confused with HB 2020 and related bills, you’re not alone. It has been called many things; cap and trade, cap and invest, and the clean energy jobs bill, to name a few. For over ten years, Oregon legislators have debated strategies for combating climate change and, finally, have legislation on the brink of passing in the 2019 legislative session. Yet, what does it mean for rural Oregon?

Please join our expert panelists for a nuanced discussion aimed to help untangle HB 2020 and related bills. The panel features:

o Roger Gray, President and CEO of PNGC Power
o Jonathan Sandau, Public Policy Specialist at Oregon Farm Bureau
o Tracy Rutten, Intergovernmental Relations Associate, League of Oregon Cities

Speakers will dive into what HB 2020 and related bills might mean for the energy and agriculture sectors, two of rural Oregon’s key economic engines, as well as how municipalities are viewing current legislation. With so many perspectives, join three voices on the front lines of one of Oregon’s most important debates of the last decade.
