Supports Gov. Inslee’s carbon accountability

Gov. Inslee’s Carbon Pollution Accountability Act is still alive and well as of today. The House has sent back to the Senate a re-tooled version of SB5057 with most of the original strong provisions intact. I urge you to call your state senator and urge passage without further amendments. I believe this will ensure that Washington continues to lead in the battle against climate change. Polluting industries should pay for the privilege of discharging carbon into the atmosphere where it affects everyone. This bill will do that.
