OSCC prepares for 2018 Legislative Session


Dear OSCC Members and Colleagues: 

As OSCC prepares for the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session, here are a few items to be aware of and ways you and your members can get involved.

2018 Legislative Priorities

The Government Affairs Council approved the OSCC 2018 Legislative Priorities at their December 15th meeting. This will now go before the Board of Directors for final consideration and approval. 

Cleaner Air Oregon

We can't stress enough how important it is for your chamber, and your members, to provide comment to DEQ on the new 'Cleaner Air Oregon' regulations. In almost 20 years of advocacy, we haven't seen regulations that threaten business operations to the extent that these do.

The deadline for comments is Monday, January 22nd.

You can view a list of potentially impacted companies here.

Comments may be submitted here or to cleanerair@deq.state.or.us

We want to make it as turn-key as possible for your chamber and your members to submit comment to DEQ.

Attached, please find:

1. Talking points that can help you draft brief comments. - Download here

2. Sample turnkey comments that you can personalize and submit on your letterhead. - Download here

3. OSCC's formal written comments (which may provide you some additional material for your comments). - Download here

Again, please take a few minutes to engage as a Chamber and get your members engaged.

Best regards,

JL Wilson
Legislative Counsel
