Oregon Introduces Bill to Implement Vehicle Scrappage Program

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact the Oregon Joint Committee on Transportation immediately to request opposition to H.B. 4060:

You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 4060 ignores the fact that all scrappage programs hold the potential for enthusiasts to lose a valuable source of rare parts for vehicle restoration projects.  
  • H.B. 4060 is unfair to the low-income vehicle owners, many of whom depend on the low-cost transportation that older cars provide and on parts available from older cars in order to maintain their own vehicles.
  • H.B. 4060 ignores the fact that there is already a $2,500 to $7,500 tax credit provided by the federal government for the purchase of electric vehicles.
  • H.B. 4060 ignores the fact that scrappage programs are difficult to police and subject to fraud.
  • H.B. 4060 ignores studies that show that most cars scrapped are infrequently or never used second or third vehicles. 
  • H.B. 4060 ignores the fact that older cars are rarely driven, generally well-maintained and not a good or cost-effective source of emissions reductions.    
  • H.B. 4060 will do little to improve air quality which is directly connected to overall basic vehicle maintenance. 


Overview: Oregon legislation (H.B. 4060) provides monetary incentives for persons in high pollution areas to scrap their older vehicles in exchange for a zero emissions rebate. The bill was introduced by a joint committee on transportation.
