He said the republican strike was justified in light of the damage that the legislation would inflict on the people of Oregon, but stressed that they too want to fight climate change.
"We want to take action against climate change, but this was a carbon tax and one of the most inefficient, complicated and expensive ways to reduce carbon emissions."  659006] – Oregon Senator, Tim Knopp
"We want to tackle climate change, but this was a carbon tax and one of the most inefficient, complicated and expensive ways to reduce carbon emissions," Knopp said.
"We're just saying that it should not cost thousands of construction contracts that would increase gas taxes by 20 cents a gallon and increase natural gas prices for people who heat their homes by almost 50 percent. We believe that there is a better way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and so we stick to it and can only prevent it by not giving the Democrats a quorum to roll over.
The bill would limit greenhouse gas emissions and auction carbon credits that companies want to emit, with a reduction in the cap. The bill would cut emissions by 45 percent by 2035 and by 80 percent by 2050 below 1990 levels. Critics say this would damage the business world and widen the gap between liberal, urban and rural parts of the state.
Knopp confirms this The state police is indeed behind the raging Republicans, and the police commissioner is determined to demand his return.
"I politely declined his offer and stated that he would always be ready to facilitate my return to the capital," said the legislature.

"If you tell them what it actually does and do not just end in talks Apart from being clean energy jobs, people are very much against it, and I think that's also the case across the country is. One of the things we said is, if you are so confident that people want it, let us refer to the people of Oregon, let them discuss it and have them vote on what process we have here in Oregon
If Oregon passes the legislation, this would be the second state in California to pass such a policy and raise questions as to whether the legislation is more favorable to the state of California than to Oregon.
"The US State of California needs more emission allowances, and that's really a lot for the state of California, not so much for Oregon and small businesses, as well as for the people who make a living, "said Knopp.

"There is a factory producing paper towels … with 2,000 workers and union jobs, and this factory is currently at risk from this bill. We find that simply unacceptable and will stay with these people, and fight as long as we can, and we hope to win, "he added, noting that they are likely to be at midnight on June 30, the date on which the term of office ends constitutionally, will remain hidden.
