Proposed Carbon Tax Discussed at Climate Form
JUNE 27, 2017
The Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy presented its new carbon tax initiative at a public forum beginning their statewide tour on Tuesday, June 20, at the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship. The hope is to put the initiative on the 2018 ballot.
The proposed policy is a performance-based carbon tax that will increase over time if the state is unable to keep up with emission reduction obligations set by the policy.
The alliance describes itself as a coalition of individuals, organizations and businesses across Washington who advocate reducing climate-change causing pollution and strengthening the economy.
