Take Action!

Oregon’s elected leaders caved on climate in 2019, but the call from Oregonians for climate action has never been louder or clearer. We're ready for bold climate legislation, and we're not backing down. Make the climate pledge: tell your legislators that you're signing up to show up for the climate in 2020, and urge them to do the same.

OLCV Scores

INCThese legislators voted to send HB 2020 back to committee instead of allowing a vote on the bill itself to take place. Their silence on climate action makes it impossible for us to give them a grade.

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.
