Climate Change and Carbon Tax
In the November 2016 election, Washington state voters rejected a proposal for the nation’s first carbon tax. Like all carbon taxes, Initiative 732 was designed to drive down global warming emissions by reducing demand for high-carbon fuels. The initiative is also highly contested with social justice, environmental and health advocates who sought to use the revenue to fund green infrastructure projects.
Join us for a timely and lively topic that will feature speakers that represent the state’s business sectors, organizations that support a state carbon tax, and public policy advocates.
