Commission Passes Resolution to Oppose Initiative 732
Initiative 732 will be on the November 2016 ballot. This measure would impose a carbon emission tax on certain fossil fuels and fossil-fuel-generated electricity, reduce the sales tax by one percentage point and increase a low-income exemption, and reduce certain manufacturing taxes. At an open public meeting, the Benton PUD Commission passed a resolution opposing Initiative 732 to take a formal position to better inform customers of the potential impacts of the measure if voted into law to the extent permitted under RCW 42.17A.
