Washington State Government

In 2017, our nation's only hope for keeping our carbon-reduction goals on track will be ambitious, thoughtful, and comprehensive action from states and local jurisdictions. It has never been more important to focus on state action than now. 

Washington State is well-positioned not just to achieve deep reductions in carbon pollution, but also to reap significant economic benefits while creating momentum and models for other states to accelerate climate action. Our legislative priorities for this year include: transforming transportation in our state through electrification; stopping unnecessary investment in fossil fuels; funding unprecedented investment in clean energy and climate adaptation (paid for by the polluters causing climate change).
