There’s only one week left until ballots are counted and two very important elections are coming down to the wire. Both of these campaigns need your help today.

Clackamas County Measure 3-372: Building a New, Safe Sellwood Bridge

Every ten years, our state legislative leaders are tasked with redrawing our state's legislative and congressional districts. 

And today, these leaders released the first round of potential redistricting maps. 

One of OLCV's prime missions is to help pass good pro-conservation legislation by electing environmental champions. The final forms of these maps will directly impact what sort of champions we can send to Salem who will work to protect Oregon's great natural legacy.

With ballots arriving this past weekend I want to encourage all OLCV members and Portland residents who care about the environment to vote YES for Portland Schools. I especially encourage you to vote yes on 26-121, the new school facilities bond measure.

At our 14th Annual Celebration for the Environment, Governor John Kitzhaber offered stirring remarks about the importance of the OLCV and our work on myriad conservation issues. And he affirmed his commitment to work with us to protect Oregon's great natural legacy for future generations. 

Here's just a small sample of his remarks:

Since I was last in office, you have had a truly productive eight years – organizing, educating, and sometimes scratching and clawing to protect Oregon’s land, air and water for future generations.

Happy Earth Day 2011!

And there's reason to celebrate. The 2011 Legislative Session is a little more than half over, and just yesterday two of our highest priority bills moved a step closer to becoming laws!

Senate Bill 536, which bans single-use checkout bags, passed out of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee. And House Bill 3145, to modernize Oregon's Bottle Bill, passed out of the House Energy, Environment, and Water Committee.
