This bill establishes the Oregon Energy Board, appointed by the governor, as the governing body for the Department of Energy, as well as for matters involving climate change.

Limited Government
This is an unnecessary expansion of the government into the realm of climate change, which has a dubious scientific foundation.

NOTE: The Oregon Energy Board adds a layer of administration over the State Department of Energy making them subject to policy direction.
