B. twenty twenty becomes law the bills objective is to reduce greenhouse gases in Oregon the protesters worry that it will also trigger a rise in fuel costs and further restrict logging in this state but Democrats on Wednesdays said the bill will probably be dead on arrival they're telling Republicans that they don't have the votes needed to pass H. B. twenty twenty and that they should return to the chamber at least the past other bills including affordable housing and paid family leave measures but the Republicans aren't budging even though the legislative session is set to end at the end of this week it's unacceptable in Oregon this is not how we solve problems governor Kate brown who has sent police to order the Republican lawmakers to return or face a daily five hundred dollar fine has urged them to return and cut a deal with her before time runs out
