Focus on SB 1059

The Oregon Environmental Council would like you to support SB 1059.

The bill (PDF) would direct the Departments of Transportation and Land Conservation and Development to develop land use and transportation “scenarios” to reduce greenhouse gases and create administrative rules to direct the six major metropolitan areas in the state to create plans to meet State greenhouse gas goals.

This bill is based on the recommendations of a panel created by the last legislative session. One outcome would likely be to create the framework under which Metro would need to conform the RTP to GHG goals.

Here’s the direct action link.
