(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Environmental Quality Commission is approving rules for the Climate Protection Program. It will charge a fee for businesses that sell gas, diesel, natural gas, and propane for the pollution they cause. It's expected to cause prices for fossil fuels to rise. The program takes effect next year. Oregon's goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50-percent by 2035 and 90-percent by 2050.
