2017 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

SB 1070

OCN Priority Bill
Clean Energy Jobs

We are championing a policy that will cap climate pollution using the best available scientific guidelines for limiting Oregon’s impacts on climate change; price all qualified greenhouse gas emissions under the cap; and invest proceeds from pricing climate pollution into clean energy like wind and solar, public transit, energy efficient homes and businesses, and more. Equity and a just transition to clean energy are central to the policy. The bill did not pass this session, but we are offering extra credit to those legislators who have signed onto or otherwise publicly expressed their support for this bill.

Yes is the pro-environment vote.

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.
