TAKE ACTION ON CLIMATECongress is working on bipartisan bill to address the climate crisis, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EIDCA). SJM 5 is a resolution in the Oregon Senate that urges Congress to make the EIDCA a reality. This resolution was written by Senator Michael Dembrow at the behest of our former Representative, Tiffiny Mitchell.
Write Senator Betsy Johnson
Here are key points about the EIDCA and SJM 5:
• The EIDCA will put a fee on carbon pollution at its source (the coal mine, oil well, natural gas well, and fuels imported across the US border) and then take that money to give back to American households in monthly dividend checks.
• This policy is revenue neutral. The fees collected on carbon emissions will be allocated to all Americans to spend any way they choose. The government will not keep any of the fees collected.
• This is a market-based solution that doesn't grow the government or increase regulations.• SJM 5 has bipartisan support in the Oregon Legislasture.
Now is the time to write Senator Johnson and tell her to vote YES on SJM 5. Sen.BetsyJohnson@oregonlegislature.gov or https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/johnson
