by 1%

Pay less at the cash register.

A revenue-neutral carbon tax like the I-732 proposal in Washington State is the right way to tackle climate change in a way that’s fair to American households, and that works for American businesses.

Steven Chu, U.S. Secretary of Energy (2009-2013) and winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics

I-732 is a serious proposal which I hope will act as the starting point for productive discussions within the Senate for forging a bipartisan agreement on climate action.

Sen. Mark Miloscia, (R-30th District)

Who We Are

I-732 was created by students, activists, academics, economists and concerned citizens who believe that reducing carbon pollution is among our most important tasks.

We realized we couldn’t wait any longer for someone else to address climate change —

that ordinary citizens need to act now. Our policy will promote cleaner energy and clearer skies (it’s worked elsewhere!) without making lower-income Washingtonians pay the bill. And it will get the job done without expensive new regulations and bureaucracies.

Carbon Washington is the organization we formed to gather signatures, collect donations and run our initiative campaign. More than 360,000 citizens signed our petition. Now I-732 is before the state legislature. Please support I-732 by contacting your legislator!
