Drazan Responds To Brown Administration’s Effort To Prohibit Sale Of Gas-Powered Vehicles

Canby, Ore. – Christine Drazan released the following statement today in response to an op-ed from the Director of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality announcing the state will adopt a rule later this year prohibiting the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035.

“Once again, bureaucrats in the Brown administration are pushing a political agenda that goes well beyond their authority. People are already struggling with an out-of-control cost of living and skyrocketing inflation. Now Governor Brown’s administration wants to make life even more costly for hardworking Oregonians, all in the name of a political agenda that is out-of-touch with everyday people.

“This proposal is dead on arrival. As governor, I’ll repeal it on Day One.”
