Of the many proposals moving forward in the Washington State Legislative session around climate action, the adoption of a Clean Fuel Standard (HB 1091), is gaining momentum! This is the third straight year the bill has been considered by the Legislature, and the third year in a row it has passed the House. In the previous two years it stalled in the Senate; this year, momentum is on our side.
Primary sponsor Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon (D-34) introduced HB 1091 at the very beginning of session, and it has been moving along steadily! After passing the Senate Ways and Means Committee, this is the furthest that a Clean Fuel Standard has ever made it in the WA Legislature. We need your help to make sure it goes all the way!
