As noted in last week’s email blast: “we’ve been working hard to update our fiscal estimates for I-732. We plan to post some updated spreadsheets in the weeks ahead, but for now we are delighted to report that our current analysis is that I-732 will (as intended) be very close to revenue-neutral.”

This post contains the promised spreadsheets and other analysis. Please note that these are still works in progress and that all files referenced in this post can be found in this Dropbox folder.

Hello carbon tax friends: Just a quick note to let you know that (1) there were no groundbreaking developments during our meeting yesterday with the Alliance, and (2) we are grateful to all of you who have written back to us to express your appreciation for yesterday’s FAQs and/or to share your views of the situation and the path forward. We welcome additional feedback, so let me repeat the message from campaign co-director Kyle Murphy: “Our campaign belongs to everyone who has donated money, joined a chapter, gathered signatures for us, and helped to take I-732 to the cusp of making the ballot, which is where we find ourselves today. So let us know what you think about this announcement from the Alliance and provide any feedback you have for those of us at CarbonWA HQ as we carry on.” more
