CM O’Brien introduces bill to eliminate new natural gas piping
Councilmember O’Brien introduces bill to eliminate natural gas piping in new buildings

Councilmember Mike O'Brien and representatives from community and environmental advocacy groups, introduce new legislation to make Seattle a greener city by prohibiting natural gas piping in new residential and commercial buildings. Following cities such as Berkeley and more recently San Luis Obispo, O'Brien's proposal would support new construction to be 100% electric, which would eliminate carbon emissions from new buildings, as natural gas use in buildings is one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions in Seattle. 

Speakers include:

Councilmember Mike O'Brien, City of Seattle

Jill Mangaliman, Executive Director, Got Green

Jess Wallach, Organizer, 350 Seattle

Max Savishinsky, Executive Director, Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility

Aaron Fairchild, CEO, Green Canopy Homes

Chris Maykut, Founder, Chaco Canyon
