Oregon Showing Interest in BC’s Carbon Tax

(Oregon News 1130 )

BC's environment minister is going to Oregon to discuss the province's carbon tax.

Terry Lake has been invited to speak with business and policy leaders as the state shows interest in possibly implementing the tax as a source of revenue.

"Oregon has shown a lot of interest in revenue-neutral style of carbon tax, as has Washington State for that matter. This is an opportunity to go and meet with business leaders in Portland and then in Salem, Oregon," he says.
