jason-blackeye-138263Climate Change is a moral and economic threat to Washington State. One of the most efficient and effective policies to reduce carbon emissions is a price on carbon pollution. We urge the Washington State legislature to enact a price on pollution as a measure to uphold our obligation to future generations.

Pricing carbon pollution this legislative session can and must be bipartisan including input from Republicans, Democrats, business leaders, social justice leaders, climate policy experts, and the public.

A price on carbon pollution will generate revenue that could be used to provide tax relief for citizens, in particular, low-income communities, funding for healthy forests and clean water, acceleration of the clean energy economy and vital state services.

The ACT NOW coalition supports the passage of a broad-based price on carbon pollution that efficiently and equitably meets our obligation to reduce pollution and fulfill Washington’s core responsibility to protect our environment and our kids, now and in the future.

ACT NOW (Advocates for a Carbon Tax NOW) is a grassroots non-partisan coalition.
