The Oregon Climate Action Plan status summary

WHile much of the program development consequent upon  Governor Brown’s 2020 Executive Order 20-04 has been developed, there remain opportunities to monitor what is happening. If you are interested in engaging, contact Alan. A progress report from the coalition is linked below:

General State Legislature Information

What’s an OLIS?

The best way to find information on legislators, bills, or committees is via the Oregon Legislative Information Systems (OLIS to frequent users) website.  I have drafted a few tips on navigating the OLIS maize.   If you have any questions or suggestions for improving that page, please contact Alan.

Legislature Notes

The Oregon 2023 Legislative Session will probably run from February through June 2023, however, dates have not been posted yet.  Oregon alternates long and short sessions.  This is the long (odd year) session. SOCAN will monitor as many bills as possible. SOCAN’s Federal & State Project team then reviewed those potentially of interest and developed a list of recommended bills to support or oppose.  As amendments appear, the situation (favorability/unfavorability) may change as far as these bills are concerned.  Our goal will be to deliver written and/or oral testimony at relevant Hearings where possible regarding these bills.

This page will be updated once the session begins.
