To say that removing the sunset on the Clean Fuels Program was tough is an understatement. Both new to chairing the energy committees in their chambers, Sen. Edwards and Rep. Vega Pederson got up to speed – and fast – on dense policy caught up in a years-long battle. Both became powerful voices of truth against oil industry misinformation. Both were also leaders on other issues – Edwards on the Toxic-Free Kids Act and Vega Pederson on clean air.

About OLCV

The Oregon League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization with a simple mission: to pass laws that protect Oregon's environmental legacy, elect pro-environment candidates to office, and hold all of our elected officials accountable.

About the Scorecard

For more than 40 years, OLCV has protected Oregon's natural legacy. An essential part of our work is holding our elected officials accountable. The OLCV Environmental Scorecard is not only one of our most important accountability tools, but also a tradition. The first scorecard was published in 1973.

By sharing how each member of the Legislature voted on the most critical conservation bills, we help Oregonians understand whether legislators listened to their constituents, or if they listened to special interest groups instead. It also serves as a summary of environmental bills and includes special recognition of the legislative champions.
