Oregon Legislators Climate Policy Fact-Finding Mission to California

Related: Climate Change

​Meridian Institute planned and executed a one-day fact-finding mission during which members of the Oregon legislative assembly met with California legislators, California Air Resources Board (CARB) members and staff, and other climate policy leaders in Sacramento, California, in January 2017. The fact-finding mission aimed to enable Oregon legislators to gain knowledge of policy options and opportunities relevant to potential climate action in Oregon and to establish new relationships with peers in the California legislature and other resource people with whom they can consult in the future on these issues. During the visit to Sacramento, the Oregon legislators received educational briefings on a number of climate policies that California is implementing and learned about best practices for developing and implementing climate policy. Meridian collaborated with the Better World Group and the Oregon Environmental Council to organize the fact-finding mission. The effort was supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
