Washington State has a chance to deliver on some of the most ambitious climate policy anywhere in the country, and Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, is a key deadline.
Let’s show some LOVE for climate action in the Northwest and voice our support for several powerful clean energy bills up for votes this week.
When it comes to climate policy in the U.S., states like ours are leading the way. Three things are clear: We CAN do it – the clean energy revolution is accelerating; We MUST do it – despite all our good progress, the climate crisis demands MUCH faster action; and we’re NOT going to get any help right now from the federal government.
So that leaves only one question: WILL we do it, right here and now, in Olympia? Lawmakers are facing an important deadline to advance the below bills by this coming Wednesday. Please make your voice heard and customize your message about why climate is a top issue for you.
Ask your legislators now to support these bills:
- 100% Fossil Free electricity. (SB 6253) would end development of new fossil-fueled power plants in Washington. Let’s stop making it worse so we can make it better!
- Investing in a just transition to clean energy. (SB 6203) would charge fossil fuel suppliers for their climate-warming carbon pollution. Let’s invest in ensuring that clean energy and transportation choices are available and affordable for everyone.
- Clean Fuels (HB 2338). It’s time to start busting up the oil monopoly and increasing the availability of cleaner alternatives!
- Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) (HB 2328). In California and Oregon, they have more affordable electric vehicles available at car dealerships. You know why? Because they have a ZEV law. We need that!
Now is the time for your legislators to take their direction from you on the urgent need for these climate solutions THIS SESSION.
Please make your voice heard now. Our children and other living beings are counting on us.
