Kate Brown to lawmakers: a repeal of Oregon's low-carbon fuels law is off limits in transportation talks

By Hillary Borrud, The Oregonian / OregonLive.

As a committee of Oregon lawmakers tours the state this summer in an effort to build support for a possible 2017 transportation-funding package, there's one topic Gov. Kate Brown asked them to avoid: a repeal of the state's low-carbon fuel law.     

Brown made her expectation clear at a May 4 invitation-only meeting of lawmakers, lobbyists and business executives in Portland, where she said a repeal of the state's low-carbon fuel law was off the table, according to drafts of her prepared remarks released by the governor's office and people who attended the meeting.
