Oregon Climate Bill Appears Dead After Republicans Literally Hide From Voting

A landmark climate change bill on the brink of passing the Oregon state legislature now seems to be dead.

The bill would have used a market mechanism to reduce carbon pollution, says Gizmodo.

All 12 Republican state senators absconded from Salem late last week or refused to appear at the statehouse.

This sparked a state police manhunt until the senators threatened the police to be left alone.

Five days after the debacle began and with the Republicans still MIA, state Democrats have caved.
