Oregon communities cannot afford cap-and-trade bill - Oppose HB 2020
HB 2020 is scheduled for a House vote on Monday! It's important that legislators continue to hear from local businesses about the real concerns with HB 2020—specifically fuel, natural gas, and propane cost increases. 
 
The revenue impact statement was posted to the Legislature's website, which laid out the impact of the bill on Oregonians, stating:
  • The bill would raise $1.3 billion when it takes effect in the 2021.
     
  • An immediate 22 cents a gallon increase at the pump in 2021, increasing to $3 a gallon by 2050.
     
  • The new 54-employee bureaucracy required to implement the bill would cost about $23 million in the coming two-year budget cycle, with potentially significant increases in the future.

While we support efforts to ensure that our state remains a national leader in addressing climate change, HB 2020 poses a serious threat to Oregon businesses and would significantly increase the cost of living for everyday Oregonians. To put it simply, HB 2020 is just not ready for prime time.
Tell your legislator that this damaging bill will hurt everyday Oregonians and local business. Vote NO on HB 2020.
