Last week, state legislators in Washington announced their budgets. The House budget was great news for climate solutions and the Priorities Coalition. However, the Senate budget dropped the ball.
The House budget closed the Big Oil Tax Loophole. Will you thank your representatives in the House for standing up for our environment, health, safety, and economy?
The House budget includes a proposal to close the Big Oil Tax Loophole – an “accidental loophole” from 1949 that wasn’t intended for oil companies. By closing the Loophole, we can reinvest $59 million back into K-12 classrooms and our communities. Oil Companies like BP and Shell should be paying to clean up their pollution, not profiting from state tax loophole breaks.
Let the House know you agree with their budget proposal – and their support of our Environmental Priorities.
