Heavy hitters on deck to discuss climate and job issues coming up in next Oregon legislative session
The Democratic Party of Lincoln County would like to extend an invitation to everyone to attend a presentation on climate and jobs legislation that will affect the state of Oregon. Representative David Gomberg will moderate the presentation.
Our local group of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby is sponsoring a presentation about the Clean Energy Jobs bill at 6:00 pm, Tuesday January 30th, at the Newport Recreation Center, Newport. This ambitious legislation to be considered by the upcoming State Legislation session places a cap and trade on greenhouse gas emissions by large emitters in Oregon.
We have four speakers for the event:
* Representative Ken Helm, Chair, Clean Energy Jobs Work Group on Agriculture, Forests, Fisheries, Rural Communities, and Tribes
* Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall
* Renew Oregon coalition director Shilpa Joshi
* Portland State University Professor of Environmental Biochemistry John Perona
