Fast Focus: 'What would you like to see state lawmakers accomplish this session?' Approve carbon tax

January 19, 2014 

I would like to see the state Legislature pass a revenue-neutral carbon tax and dividend with a border tax adjustment, as proposed by the Citizens Climate Lobby. It will (1) reduce our carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels; (2) create jobs in the non-carbon energy sector; and (3) help us transition to a non-fossil-fuel-based economy.
