Carbon Fee Initiative to be Submitted for Ballot

According to the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, signature gatherers for I-1631 have gathered about 350,000 signatures, enough to qualify for the ballot with about 100,000 to spare (for weeding out invalid signatures). A ceremony will be held at the state capitol building in Olympia on Monday, July 2 at 10:30 a.m. to turn in the signatures. Then it is off to the races for the fall campaign! We can expect plenty of opposition from dirty energy companies.
