“Pass the climate and transportation package now”
That’s the headline from an April 16 editorial in The Seattle Times supporting passage of the Climate Commitment Act, SB5126, saying:
“This package would make crucial infrastructure improvements while leveraging a cap-and-trade mechanism to cut the state’s greenhouse gas pollution…”
“More than $5 billion of this construction plan relies on revenues from “cap-and-invest,” the carbon pricing bill passed by the Senate and now before the House. The limits on emissions will bring down the state’s carbon pollution while putting money into cleaner transportation — and improves lives in areas suffering from intense industrial and freight emissions.”
