2019 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

HB 2001


Speaker Tina Kotek’s bill increased housing choice and the affordable housing supply in high opportunity areas in our state, which makes a huge difference for Oregonians and supports our state land use goals to avoid sprawl. Specifically, the bill requires cities over 10,000 in population to allow middle housing in areas zoned for single-family housing. “Middle housing” is defined as duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, and cottages.

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.
