We are excited to announce that OLCV is hosting its first ever Photo Contest! As we ramp up to launch our brand new website and Legislative Scorecard, we wanted to see Oregon through the eyes of the people who help keep our state beautiful -- our members! Oregon is such a diverse place, and we have members from all over the state. We want to see what your Oregon looks like! That means we'd love to see not just the beautiful skylines and mountain views (we want those too!), but also the camping trips with friends, the long, winding trails in our many amazing parks, and the rainy coast visits where your dog couldn't have gotten muddier if they tried! In other words -- we want to see how YOU enjoy Oregon. 

Clean Air and Good Roads at Odds No More

Transportation Should be Considered On Its Own Merits

 

Portland, OR –  Today, Oregon’s Governor confirmed what had become clear to many over the last week: Oregonians don’t have to choose between good roads and clean air. Representatives of groups as disparate as Oregon’s schools and utility ratepayers objected to a proposed “replacement” for clean air legislation that had been tacked on to a transportation bill. Legislators rejected the package and decided much needed transportation funding should be considered on its own merits.

Salem, OR – Volunteers and environmental leaders from across the state arrived in Salem today for the OCN/OLCV lobby day – the Clean, Green Lobby Machine. From southern Oregon to Bend to Cave Junction to the Columbia Gorge, Oregonians converged to bring the attention of Oregon’s elected officials to the critical environmental priorities for this legislative session.
