Calling Campaign for a Carbon Price in the Reconciliation Bill
The CCL Senate, House, and Biden-calling campaigns far exceeded their goals! Calls asking for a price on carbon (and dividend) have been flooding DC offices over the last months. Thanks to all who participated. The signs continue to be positive. With a new reconciliation bill vote goal of October 31st, there's still time to keep up the effort! For instructions: cclusa.org/house or cclusa.org/senate. Want to volunteer for the phonebank? cclusa.org/phonebank-signup.
Given at the Climate Action Day in Bremerton, WA on 9/25/2021

A bipartisan Infrastructure Bill that includes funding aimed at addressing climate issues passed the Senate on August 10th. A budget reconciliation bill that could include more specific climate measures (including hopefully a carbon fee and dividend) is now in process.
Olympia had a truly historic legislative session for climate bills! The Clean Fuel Standard (HB1091) and the Climate Commitment Act (SB5126) both passed, among others. You can continue to enter your support for climate bills at the WA State Legislative Website, public testimony.
