Democrats are rewarding their special interest donors, while delivering a heavy financial blow to everyday Washingtonians – and at a time when many are struggling to recover from devastating COVID-19 shutdowns. Last week, Democrats passed both a cap-and-trade and an LCFS bill. As a result, Washingtonians could see an increase in gas taxes by 55 cents, totaling $1.23 per gallon when combined with our current high taxes.
These bills will not benefit the environment. They will increase the cost of heating homes, buying groceries, and fueling vehicles – among other cost increases. These extreme “green” policies will also make it more difficult for Washington farmers to stay in business.
So why are Democrats pushing these useless “green” policies? Well, these bills will ensure that a large sum of taxpayer dollars go toward rewarding major Democrat campaign donors, like out-of-state (and country) biofuel companies.
The state House and Senate must still agree on the final language in the bills, and vote on final passage. Will you join us in sending a message to state lawmakers? Help us demand they stop and consider the burden these bills will place on everyday Washingtonians!
