California Study Mission 1.0
Many Lessons from California Cap & Invest Mission
This spring, Washington state became just the second in the nation, after California, to pass Cap-and-Invest legislation which provides a reliable mechanism for cutting net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050 while raising billions of dollars for equitable climate action.
In our ongoing effort to implement smart climate policies in Washington, Clean & Prosperous Washington led an exciting California Study Mission to the Sacramento area. More than 80 policy experts and community stakeholders from Washington and California came together including government officials, nonprofit leaders and entrepreneurs to see firsthand how California’s climate legislation is working to reduce carbon emissions in that state while increasing economic activity. We wrapped up the study mission with renewed enthusiasm and promises to continue sharing and learning from our neighbors to the south.
