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.
