2019 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

HB 2020

OCN Priority Bill
Clean Energy Jobs

A decade in the making, this critical piece of legislation was designed to cap climate pollution; price qualified greenhouse gas emissions under the cap; and invest proceeds from pricing climate pollution into communities across Oregon to create clean energy jobs and a thriving economy, especially in communities most impacted by climate change.

Because it was so vitally important, HB 2020 — the Clean Energy Jobs bill — is triple scored.

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.
