2021 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

HB 2165

Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentives

The state EV incentive programs––which had been set to expire in 2023––got a crucial extension from this bill. HB 2165 includes low-income incentives for new and used EVs with its Charge Ahead program, and it enshrines utilities’ role in installing EV charging infrastructure.

About the Scorecard

For more than 40 years, OLCV has protected Oregon's natural legacy. An essential part of our work is holding our elected officials accountable. The OLCV Environmental Scorecard is not only one of our most important accountability tools, but also a tradition. The first scorecard was published in 1973.

By sharing how each member of the Legislature voted on the most critical conservation bills, we help Oregonians understand whether legislators listened to their constituents, or if they listened to special interest groups instead. It also serves as a summary of environmental bills and includes special recognition of the legislative champions.
