Dear Senator Smith,

We write as individuals with extensive experience in Oregon business who share a commitment to advance environmental policy that benefits Oregon's economy. We urge you to take a leadership role in supporting mandatory federal limits on global warming pollution, which would be designed to slow, stop and reverse the trend of emissions increases in time to avoid potentially catastrophic climate change.

We look forward to working with you and your colleagues to ensure that such a system is designed to maximize benefits and minimize costs to Oregon and the nation. We note that broadly representative, bipartisan stakeholder processes in Oregon have now recommended State carbon emissions reductions in the absence of meaningful Federal action. Your engagement will not only speed such action, but also send a signal to business that the state is committed to advancing a 21st century clean technology market. Finally, your leadership will ensure that Oregon's actions and successes are fully acknowledged and accommodated as Federal standards are being developed.

Further delay in establishing mandatory national limits only exposes investors, businesses and communities to higher costs and risks. We believe strongly that your personal involvement is crucial to a bipartisan solution that can win broad support in Congress and the Administration.

Sincerely,

Gail Achterman
