The Oregon Clean Energy Jobs bill:
- Creates a limit, or cap, on Oregon’s climate pollution (greenhouse gas emissions) that lowers each year
- Sets a price on climate pollution produced by the largest polluters in the state; and
- Reinvests the proceeds in clean energy solutions – like solar and wind power, energy efficient homes and businesses, public transit, electric vehicles, and healthier communities. The bill prioritizes investment in communities hit first and worst by climate change.
