Oregon Global Warming Commission
The Oregon Global Warming Commission was created by the 2007 Legislature through House Bill 3543. In March 2008, the Governor appointed the 11 voting members of the Commission. The Commission's general charge is to recommend ways to coordinate state and local efforts to reduce Oregon's greenhouse gas emissions consistent with Oregon's goals and to recommend efforts to help the state, local governments, businesses and residents prepare for the effects of global warming. The Commission may recommend statutory and administrative changes, policy measures and other actions to be carried out by state and local governments, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and residents. Additionally, the Commission tracks and evaluates assessments of global warming impacts on Oregon and the Northwest; existing GHG reduction policies and the advancement of regional, national and international policies; costs, risks and benefits of various strategies; progress toward reduction goals; technological advances; and other related tasks.
