Governor Inslee announces intention for regulatory action on carbon pollution

Yesterday the Governor asked the Washington State Department of Ecology to develop substantive rules to achieve emission reductions using existing authority. Ecology was directed to step up enforcement of existing state pollution laws and develop a regulatory cap on carbon emissions. Information is available here. AWC will be engaging, sharing information, and seeking to understand the implications of this announcement for cities as the details of this proposal become clear.
