This bill urges Congress to enact Green New Deal legislation along the lines of the proposed Green New Deal in order to respond to the climate emergency.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
Concept or not, this bill promotes a communistic type of socialism that isn’t what America represents nor do Oregonians want.
Feasibly an economic disaster that is not in the best interest of Oregon or Oregonians.
This request to Congress goes beyond the Green New Deal bill, which is only a concept, but this bill is actually saying that what is best for Oregonians is no air travel replaced with high-speed rail, less cars and gas run equipment, upgrade industry and homes with high-tech electricity, convert ranches to something with less green-gas emissions. Key goals include cutting greenhouse-gas emissions to net zero over 10 years and guaranteeing jobs, quality healthcare, and higher education for all.
