Washington voters to decide fate of state's landmark climate policy
City Inside/Out: Climate Challenges

Washington voters will decide this November whether to repeal the state’s landmark climate change policy, the 2021 Climate Commitment Act (CCA). Initiative 2117 supporters argue the CCA is a hidden gas tax that hurts consumers, but opponents say the cap and trade law requiring the state’s top polluters to pay for their greenhouse gas emissions by buying allowances is a good policy that will help the Evergreen State meets its 2050 climate goals.
