2021 Legislative Priorities: So, what do we want to see happen in this legislature?

What about Carbon Pricing? We understand that carbon pricing is probably the one policy issue on our 2021 legislative priorities that is likely to need some deep engagement, learning, analysis, and conversation to help us come to a consensus on what our advocacy looks like on this as a Network. With a “Cap and Invest” bill coming from Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon that he claims to be a “gold standard of environmental justice”, and a Washington Strong green recovery bond approach both being presented this session, we want to be sure to support the best and most equitable carbon pricing policy possible.
