Support diesel action in the 2019 legislative session!

Please join with other businesses, organizations and individuals to endorse bold action to address diesel pollution in the 2019 legislative session. Together, we can send a clear signal that we share a top priority: to protect the health of our communities and the place we call home.

Dear Oregon Legislature,

2019 must be the year that Oregon gets serious about addressing one of Oregon’s biggest toxic air quality threats: diesel exhaust from old commercial diesel engines. We have a unique opportunity to apply tens of millions of dollars to retire Oregon’s aging fleet of commercial heavy-duty trucks and buses.

Those dollars from a VW legal settlement could be the springboard to make a huge difference in saving lives, saving billions of dollars in health care costs, and improving health in our communities. Smart policy and a strong timeline for retiring old engines will make all the difference.
