State Coalition Carbon Price

As the risks of climate change become clearer, the need grows for comprehensive action to cut carbon pollution. By far the simplest and most effective action we can take is to institute a statewide carbon tax. If implemented correctly, this would result in dramatic CO2 reductions and create a market-based transition to a clean energy economy.

The Carbon Costs Coalition, an initiative by legislators in nine states (CT, MA, MD, NH, NY, OR, RI, VT, and WA) is leading a state-based, regional movement in support of reducing carbon emissions by putting a price on carbon. Each legislator has introduced or is drafting a proposal that is unique to their local economy. This regional approach eliminates any concerns about competitive disadvantage and shows the momentum around climate action in the states.
