SB 324 Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) To Add $1.06 per Gallon of Gas

SALEM — Doing precisely what she said she would, Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday made good on promises to sign a contentious bill extending Oregon’s clean fuels program — refusing demands from Republicans and other critics that she veto legislation closely tied to former Gov. John Kitzhaber’s scandal-marred legacy. Brown has said she’s sensitive to “unintended consequences” and offered to have the state’s agriculture and environmental qualities proactively monitor gas and farm prices and the program’s effect on alternative fuel supplies. The program continued by SB 324 requires distributors to lower the carbon “intensity” of vehicle fuel by 10 percent over the next decade.
