Despite a federal government that refuses to acknowledge climate change, Washington can, and must, step up as a leader for effective and equitable climate action and accelerating the transition to a clean energy economy.
This bill represents an innovative and comprehensive climate solution based on the principles of the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy
, a coalition of which Climate Solutions is a core member, focused on investing in 21st century infrastructure and delivering economic and environmental justice to communities disproportionately impacted by poverty and pollution. The Alliance wants to show how the Evergreen State can become a global leader in cutting carbon pollution equitably and effectively.
What: Hearing for HB 1646, the Clean Energy Transition Act
When: Tuesday, March 14 at 1:30 pm (w/Policy Briefing & Activist Training, 11:00 am)
Where: Olympia, WA, John O'Brien HR B
Join us at 10:30am for coffee and mingling before a policy briefing and activist training from partners with the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy. Then break for lunch and a chance to stop by your legislator’s office with a packet urging support for the bill, before attending the hearing with us from 1:30-3:30 pm.
The Clean Energy Transition Act prices pollution and funds the solutions to climate change: investing in clean energy, clean water and healthy forests, and protecting disproportionately impacted communities and workers in the process. This is our chance to show our legislators the kind of solution that Washingtonians wholeheartedly support and want to see passed into law. We hope you can join us!
Can’t make the hearing? No problem. Please call the hotline today: (800) 562-6000 and leave a message for your representatives asking them to support HB 1646.
Thanks for all you do for positive change!
