Cleaner Cars within Reach!

The Oregon Economic Council passes on this call to action:

The proposed “clean car standards” are one step away from becoming a reality in Oregon. Now is the time to urge the Environmental Quality Commission (EQC) to permanently adopt the clean car standards. These more protective tailpipe standards for new passenger cars and light-duty trucks will make Oregon’s air cleaner, reduce our impact on global warming and save us money at the fuel pump! The EQC will accept public comment until 5 p.m. March 3. You can express yourself online, via email, snail mail or even at a public hearing.
