"We are representatives of a diverse set of stakeholders, including thousands of fellow Eugene residents who wake up each day to sweat the details on home ownership, home building and making sure you have the energy you need. While we come from different perspectives, we share a principled approach to thoughtful carbon reduction policies and believe in housing policies that ensure affordability, reliability and resiliency in the long run for the people we serve and represent. 

That's why we’re coming together today to call your attention to something that’s as disappointing as it is surprising – a Eugene City Council work session that could result in prohibiting natural gas and renewable natural gas in new homes and businesses."
