At the end of February 2015, a significant and important decision was made by the Oregon State Senate. The State’s Clean Fuels Act, which was originally passed in 2009 and was due to expire in 2015 has been extended, meaning its 2015 expiration date no longer applies. This particular act requires all oil and gas producers within the state to reduce their CO 2 emissions created from the burning of fossil fuels by at least 10 percent over the next decade. This new bill sends a firm message to oil and gas producers that Oregon wants cleaner fuels and that we care about the effect our fuel production has on the planet. It also carefully positions Oregon as one of the States leading the fight against climate change.
