Peter Defazio
The Oregonian's
He addressed the House Democratic Caucus earlier this year to discuss his concerns with cap and trade and had an op-ed in the Oregonian. We continue to hear that people are confused about his position on the issue and thought the city club would be a good forum to clarify since a lot of liberals/progressives/democrats support cap and trade. He spoke at the city club a number of years ago to discuss his opposition to energy deregulation at a time when many liberals/progressives supported it. He will also likely discuss the highway bill since the audience will want to hear from him about progress/outlook on the bill.
