“Pass the climate and transportation package now”

April 17, 2021

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.”
