The governor has yet to make a decision on the bills, which would affect green project subsidies and compliance with renewable energy standards.

One of the measures would trim a program that subsidizes green energy projects by reducing tax credits for large wind farms. The other would allow older biomass plants to be counted toward the state’s renewable energy standards adopted two years ago.

Kulongoski spokeswoman Anna Richter Taylor said Monday the governor has not decided on either bill, “but he doesn’t want to see legislation that would slow down momentum in this area.”
