Governor Kate Brown Statement on the Oregon Climate Action Program
(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown outlined support for the Oregon Climate Action Program (CAP) released today. The Oregon Climate Action Program’s goal is to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emission levels in Oregon.
“Climate change threatens our communities, our economy, and our way of life in Oregon,” said Governor Kate Brown. “This is why I support a comprehensive market-based program to reduce our emissions and transition to a clean energy economy. It is encouraging to have reached this important milestone with a bill that reflects significant work on the part of legislators, advocates, and businesses across Oregon. I look forward to further refinements through the legislative process to ensure the program achieves our climate goals while growing our economy.”
