Climate Lobby Day January 22, 2018

UU Voices and several UU members from around the state participated in the Climate Lobby Day on January 22, 2018. The day was organized by Climate Solutions and Audubon Society of Washington. Speakers from each organization described various climate proposals at the legislature, including clean fuel, clean electric power and carbon tax bills. (For more on the carbon tax bill, see separate blog.) Governor Inslee addressed the group and then we went to the capitol to meet with legislators. Generally speaking, most legislators seemed receptive to these climate proposals, some citing the fact that businesses prefer a legislative approach to climate versus the initiative process. This indicates that some version of a carbon tax and other climate bills may well pass the legislature this year, unlike previous legislatures. Stay Tuned
