Carbon taxes: The Washington State experience

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has launched a cross-country tour with Todd Myers, Director for the Center for the Environment at the Washington Policy Center, to share lessons from his state’s experience with carbon taxes. In November 2016, Washington state voters rejected Washington Initiative 732, which would have made Washington the first U.S. state to impose a direct carbon tax, beginning at $15 per ton and rising to $25 per ton in the second year, together with offsetting reductions in business and sales taxes. The measure was defeated with 59 per cent of voters opposing it. https://www.taxpayer.com/news-release...
