There a was a reason that earlier this year Republican legislators were asking Jay Inslee to commit that he would not use an “executive order” to essentially impose a $1 per gallon gas tax on the people of Washington, by mandating a new “low-carbon fuel standard” in our state.
It’s because they did not trust him not to do something on his own that would not pass the legislature.
Now comes news from our neighbor to the South that equally-liberal Governor John Kitzhaber has decided to move forward on a ”clean-fuels” program that he could not get his Democrat-controlled legislature to pass.
We can only hope that Inslee might decide on a “moratorium” from further extremely liberal executive actions, after his not-so-well-received decision earlier this week to ignore the voters’ wishes on the death penalty.
