Last year, a number Oregon’s leading business and labor leaders were brought together to form a committee to advise the Governor on Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program. Over the last 12 months, the group heard from experts, read analyses, examined California’s model, shared their collective economic and market experience. And last week, they announced the results of their investigation.
Determining that the program has great value for Oregon’s economy, the committee was unanimous in their recommendation that the state lift the sunset and reauthorize the Clean Fuels Program.
These industry leaders presented their final analysis and recommendations to the Governor in a report last week, which includes findings of the program’s potential to create jobs, position the state as a leader in alternative fuel production, and save Oregonians more than a billion dollars in fuel costs.
