Tom Potiowsky, Jenny Liu, Jeff Renfro, and Scott Stewart, Northwest Economic Research Center (NERC), won the 2013 Award for Excellence in Print Publications from the Association for University Business and Economic Research at its October conference. NERC's winning report, "Carbon Tax and Shift: How to Make it Work for Oregon's Economy," estimates the economic and emissions impacts of imposing a carbon tax in Oregon. Following publication, the Oregon Legislature passed SB306, which allocated money for an expanded version of the study. NERC has been selected by the state to perform this study.
