The House passes the Climate Commitment Act!
April 23, 2021
Moments ago, the Washington State House of Representatives passed the Climate Commitment Act, SB 5126, sending the bill back to the Senate for “concurrence.” Only 2 working days remain for the Legislature to complete this work and pass the bill for the Governor’s signature. The Legislature is scheduled to adjourn its regular session on Sunday, April 25.
Under the leadership of Environment and Energy Chair Joe Fitzgibbon, the House has now passed “the strongest climate legislation” in the United States, according to Earth Day Founder Denis Hayes.
The legislation passed the House by a vote of 54 to 43, and now moves back to the Senate prior to final approval.
Please send Rep. Fitzgibbon a thank you for his climate leadership.
