HB 2020 is scheduled for a House vote on Monday! It's important that legislators continue to hear from local businesses about the real concerns with HB 2020 -specifically fuel, natural gas, and propane cost increases.
The revenue impact statement was posted to the Legislature's website, which laid out the impact of the bill on Oregonians, stating:
- The bill would raise $1.3 billion when it takes effect in the 2021.
- An immediate 22 cents a gallon increase at the pump in 2021, increasing to $3 a gallon by 2050.
- The new 54-employee bureaucracy required to implement the bill would cost about $23 million in the coming two-year budget cycle, with potentially significant increases in the future.
