Nancy Hamilton, Bob Keefe and Anne Kelly, Oregon Business, August 3rd 2020

In time of COVID-19, we must create a more resilient economy – Gov. Brown’s bold climate plan will help us build back better.

The twin public health and economic crises wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic are unlike anything we have seen in modern history. With new cases rising, they are not going away any time soon, and come as an even bigger crisis bears down upon us: the climate crisis.

As we navigate the tenuous waters of economic recovery, it is critical that Oregon keeps an eye to building back better through investments in programs that create lasting jobs and a stronger, more sustainable economy. Thanks to the leadership of Gov. Kate Brown and her Executive Order No. 20-04, Oregon is already moving in the right direction.
