Guest Opinion, Robert John Sheelen, Medord Mail Tribune, March 24, 2019
After years of resistance, some Oregon Republicans may be ready to acknowledge the reality that a climate problem exists. An example of this is former Sen. Alan DeBoer’s recent guest opinion here (March 17).
It is curious that DeBoer and his fellow Republicans did not advocate for and help pass climate legislation when they had greater representation in the legislation. It seems suspicious for Sen DeBoer to suggest alternate legislation when there is wide support for the cap and trade legislation, HB2020, which is under active consideration in the current legislative session.
