Statement on the Oregon State of the State, from Catherine Reheis-Boyd, President, Western States Petroleum Association

“Late last year Governor Brown said in her budget release that we should ‘put aside our differences and chart a path — together — towards a promising future for every Oregonian.’  We agree with that sentiment and the optimistic theme of the state of the state and continue to believe we should approach energy policy development mindfully and factually so that we can work towards the best energy future for Oregon and the West.

“The state’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard policy remains an inefficient and ineffective path towards emissions reductions. We look forward to working with the administration and stakeholders on climate policies that balance environmental concerns and bring real carbon reductions with economic prosperity for all.”
