Board Supports Clean Fuels Program and Oregon Opportunity Initiative
At the quarterly Board of Directors meeting January 30, members heard from key legislators on the big issues facing Oregon, ranging from revenue reform to education and healthcare redesign. Sen. Ginny Burdick reported on revenue and finance; Rep. Andy Olson discussed corrections reform; Rep. Mark Johnson reported on PERS; Rep. Tobias Read commented on the I-5 Bridge Replacement; and Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward provided an overview of the 2013 session. (Pictured below from left to right).
The board accepted an Environment & Economic Development Policy Committee recommendation to uphold OBA’s standing policy in support of the Clean Fuels Program and voted in favor of support for the Oregon Opportunity Initiative with the caveat that details of the proposal may be refined during the session.
