Breakfast discussion: Could a carbon tax work for Oregon’s economy?
Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 8:00am

Please join Portland State University's Northwest Economic Research Center and Institute for Sustainable Solutions for a breakfast discussion exploring the economic possibilities of a carbon tax for Oregon.

The Northwest Economic Research Center's new report, “Carbon Tax and Shift: How to Make It Work for Oregon's Economy” reveals that a statewide carbon tax and shift policy could generate annual revenues of $1 billion or more for Oregon while also shrinking income and business taxes and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

British Columbia enacted a similar tax in 2008, hear from a top official about economic and environmental results.

FEATURED SPEAKERS:
TOM POTIOWSKY, former Oregon state economist and director of Portland State University's Northwest Economic Research Center.
TERRY LAKE, British Columbia Minister of Environment
