Filed and effective Nov. 17, 2017
View Oregon Bulletin, December 2017

Rule Coordinator: Cory-Ann Wind, 503-229-5388

The 2009 Oregon Legislature authorized the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission to adopt rules to reduce lifecycle emissions of greenhouse gases from Oregon’s transportation fuels by 10 percent over a 10-year period. The 2015 Oregon Legislature authorized the removal of the Dec. 31, 2015 sunset date of the authorizing statute and further authorized the EQC to adopt rules for managing and containing the costs of compliance with the Clean Fuels Program.
At this time, DEQ proposes to amend the CFP rules under division 253 of chapter 340 of the Oregon Administrative Rules to complete the implementation of Senate Bill 324 (2015) by adopting more refined rules for managing and containing the costs of compliance with the CFP. The rules also implement enrolled bill HB 2017 A from the 2017 Legislature.

DEQ is beginning a rulemaking that considers whether additional cost containment measures for the Oregon Clean Fuels Program are needed. The Clean Fuels Program 2017 Rulemaking Advisory Committee is being convened to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on technical and policy issues, as well as the fiscal and economic impact of the proposed amendments when compared to the existing rule. Committee meetings will be held through the spring of 2017.​
