The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is taking the first steps toward cutting greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon by expanding the list of who needs to report their emissions to the state. The Environmental Quality Commission voted to expand the reporting program in October to start laying the groundwork for state goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The state rules generally follow in the footsteps of the Environmental Protection Agency greenhouse gas reporting rules, which will allow most Oregon businesses to fill out just one set of paperwork. In a news release today, the DEQ released a list of who now needs to report their emissions to the state and will be soliciting public comments on the new rules through Jan. 24.
