I am grateful to the East Oregonian for the article on cap and trade House Bill 2020 (Tuesday, Nov. 19).

The article updated the status of the bill and the myriad of issues that make this bill extremely important to all residents of Oregon. What we need now is for our elected officials to exhibit a little leadership by informing their electorate, through town hall meetings, on the purpose, need and some options for this bill.

There is much confusion surrounding this bill, and this will allow for some clarification and feedback from a more informed electorate.
