Initiative 732 did not come from corporations, think tanks, progressive groups or conservative groups. I-732 was created by students, activists, academics, economists and concerned citizens who believe that reducing carbon pollution is among our most important tasks.
We realized we couldn’t wait any longer for someone else to address climate change — that ordinary citizens need to act now. Our policy will promote cleaner energy and clearer skies (it’s worked elsewhere!) without making lower-income Washingtonians pay the bill. And it will get the job done without expensive new regulations and bureaucracies.
Carbon Washington is the organization we formed to gather signatures, collect donations and run our initiative campaign. More than 360,000 citizens signed our petition. Now I-732 is headed for the state legislature.
