Legislative Update

Federal

CCL’s federal strategy is to convince Congress that carbon pricing is popular (and also fast, effective and durable) and to act with urgency on it.  Treasury Secretary Yellen says “we cannot solve the climate crisis without it.” More details

 

State

Several climate bills, including HB1091 Clean Fuel Standard Act, are moving forward but with very close, partisan votes. You can enter your support for this bill at the WA State Legislative Website, public testimony.  

 

County

Victory!  On 3/22, the Pierce County Council voted 6-1 in favor of accepting the Pierce County Sustainability Plan!  Several of our own chapter members worked very hard to help it pass.
