Legislature Finishes without Carbon Tax

According to news reports the legislature finished its work on the supplementary budget on March 8 and adjourned without the need for a special session. This will definitely end the possibility of a carbon tax this session and also means that stronger emissions standards (40% reduction by 2015 and 80% by 2050) will not pass.

The legislature did pass three bills on our priority list: Legal Financial Obligations, Oil Transport Safety (Oil Spill Tax on Pipelines) and Voting Rights (see separate posts under News).
