Guest editorial by NFIB Oregon State Director Anthony Smith
Oregon is not standing idly by while its neighboring state to the south races ahead with the most restrictive environmental standards in the nation.
“Not to be outdone by our neighbor to the south, Oregon is looking to adopt similar rules,” writes NFIB Oregon State Director Anthony Smith in a guest editorial published by the Salem Business Journal.
“The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) plans to move forward with its own regulations later this month. A public comment period will open in the fall when Oregonians will have the opportunity to share with regulators how the new rules will impact their lives, their household budgets, and their businesses. The rules could be up for a vote by the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission by the end of the year.”
