I agree with Commissioner Yamamoto that HB 2020 is not, as it stands, a good idea. While reduction in CO2 emissions is a very worthwhile goal, it is one that really needs to be pursued on a national and international level. Unfortunately, the effect of HB 2020 on the world’s burden of CO2 would be negligible, while its effect on rural resident of Oregon would be considerable. There is little point in imposing such a burden on Oregonians if the rest of the country isn’t joining in. Worst case, people will leave Oregon to carry on their lives as they do now, in another state.
