League of Women Voters Supports Carbon Pricing

At the League of Women Voters 2018 national convention, the membership voted overwhelmingly to support the following:

The League of Women Voters stands united with, and in support of, efforts to price carbon emissions, whether cap-and-trade, carbon tax/fee, or another viable pricing mechanism. The League does not have a position on how the revenue generated is to be used.

We do not espouse any single method of pricing carbon over another. We will evaluate all proposed methods based on their effectiveness to abate emissions and whether the method can be successfully implemented.

The webinar describes how the League evaluates ballot measures and legislation for carbon pricing.
