I write as co-facilitator of Southern Oregon Climate Action Now on behalf of the over 1600 rural Southern Oregonians who are SOCAN. Our mission is to promote awareness and understanding of the science of global warming and its climate change consequences and motivate individual and collective action to address the resulting climate crisis.

We have been engaged with legislators and climate concerned activists in Oregon for several years in efforts to achieve programs that promise meaningful greenhouse gas emissions in the state. One of the greatest successes in this arena was passage of HB2021 last session.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case with complex proposals, a few minor blemishes came to light subsequent to passage of the bill. HB 4059 offers amendments that correct several such blemishes.

Since HB4059 only enhances the previous bill, Southern Oregon Climate Action Now endorses this proposal.

Respectfully submitted
