April 19 "Proposed Environmental Tax for Washington” with CarbonWA
CarbonWA will be presenting their revenue-neutral carbon tax campaign. A discussion with Q&A will review how this proposal can drastically reduce carbon emissions, make our tax code less regressive, how it fits in with other state/national climate action proposals and how individuals can help to propel this effort to the ballot in Washington State.
Environmental tax reform would:
§ Improve air quality and reduce airborne toxins
§ Help slow ocean acidity and sea level rise
§ Reduce the state sales tax by a full percentage point
§ Fund the Working Families Sales Tax Rebate to help working families
§ Eliminate the Business and Occupation (B&O) tax for manufacturers
§ Pay for these tax reductions with a carbon tax of $25 per ton of CO2
