The Carbon Tax Ballot Measure, I-732
October 13, 2016 - 8:05 am
Washington State Initiative Measure 732 would establish a state-wide tax on carbon emissions to fight climate change. Revenue raised from that tax would then pay for a reduced state sales tax, a rebate for low-income working households, and the effective elimination of a manufacturing tax.
The initiative was brought about by the group Carbon Washington. There has been some push-back from environmental justice groups and most environmental organizations are taking a neutral stance on the issue. Find out why.
