Shouldn’t excuses for inaction on climate change be a thing of the past?
This week in Olympia, both the House and Senate are expected to vote on Cap and Invest, the Governor’s climate change bill. The choice is clear: vote yes and move forward to reduce our state’s global warming pollution and fossil fuel dependence or vote no and steer our state back down the dead-end road of inaction.
Urge your legislators to support the Governor’s climate change bill.

Sample Message: “I want you to take action this session to reduce global warming pollution. Please support the Governor’s climate change bill.”
Washingtonians sent over $16 billion out of the state last year to pay for imported fossil fuels. Instead of staying in our communities and creating jobs, that money drained out of Washington. Meanwhile, climate change threatens our communities, our health, and our Washington way of life.
The Legislature has the opportunity to deliver solutions to both these challenges, and drive the development of a clean energy economy in Washington at a time when we need it most. Legislators need to hear from you: inaction is not a responsible option. Your voice will make an impact on their decision.
Please call 1 800 562 6000 today to urge your legislators to support the Governor’sclimate change bill. Let’s help make it happen!
