2021 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

HB 2357

OCN Priority Bill
OFRI Reform

The OFRI Reform bill originally called for the elimination of the Oregon Forest Resource Institute (OFRI) and the redirection of its funds toward climate-smart, scientifically sound forest management. The amended bill reformed the agency by cutting its budget in half and redirecting its funds––including eliminating their advertising budget which they used to mislead Oregonians about the quality of the state's forest policies.

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.
