GEI staff attorney appointed to Rulemaking Advisory Committee (RAC) to provide perspective on Oregon’s new program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
In the Portland metropolitan area, pollution from diesel-fueled vehicles and engines presents a significant risk to public health and causes temperature increases that contribute to global climate change. GEI’s Deconstructing Diesel Law & Policy Roadmap aims to help local governments and community stakeholders better understand the legal frameworks and regulatory limitations local governments must navigate to effectively address diesel pollution. The Roadmap presents a variety of strategies local governments can implement to reduce diesel pollution from on-road, nonroad, and indirect sources in Portland and surrounding Multnomah County.
