HBA staff have been following the Climate Friendly and Equitable Communities (CFEC) rulemaking since it started taking shape last year. While OHBA has been actively working at the state level through the rulemaking process, work groups and in meetings with DCLD staff and the governor’s office, HBA has been participating in meetings at the local level. In addition to participation in the recent rulemaking process, OHBA has partnered with other concerned business associations and individuals to form People for Affordable Oregon, an advocacy coalition dedicated to three things; slow down the process, study the impacts and broaden the conversation to include affected stakeholders. HBA will continue to work with OHBA on this issue and inform members through this advocacy newsletter and meetings as necessary.
