Diesel Emissions
With Oregon’s diesel emissions being the sixth highest in the nation, attempts to pass laws that might put the State’s limits on par with California’s have stalled in the legislature.
Because State law limits diesel emissions very little, activists are concerned that Oregon has become a dumping ground for vehicles and engines that would be illegal elsewhere.
KBOO’s Nathan Behensky spoke with Mary Peveto of Neighbors for Clean Air about the campaign.
