Oregon Legislators Support Divestment and Disclosure: 2022 Bill introduced

Climate champion legislators Khanh Pham, Paul Holvey and Jeff Golden had an Op-Ed in The Oregonian, “Oregon must disclose and divest from fossil fuels” on December 8th, 2021 supporting our campaign. They stated, “That is why we are introducing a bill this upcoming 2022 legislative session to disclose Oregon’s fossil fuel holdings so the public can clearly understand our state’s financial and climate risks. We support the urging of Divest Oregon, a grassroots coalition representing unions with PERS members, racial and climate justice groups, youth leaders, and faith communities: the state must stop any new investments in the fossil sector and phase out current holdings in the next five years.”
