Oregon’s carbon cap-and-trade proposal passed out of its legislative committee on a party-line vote Friday, May 17, setting it up as the next landmark piece of legislation to pass in the 2019 session.
It’s now one step closer to the desk of Gov. Kate Brown, who this week signed the Student Success Act into law. If cap-and-trade were to pass as well, it would give her two landmark wins within months of her re-election.
