Salt Lake Units to discuss a Utah Carbon Tax Swap Bill

In the weeks leading up to the 2019 Utah Legislative session speakers from the Salt Lake Citizens Climate Lobby will preview a carbon tax swap bill sponsored by Utah House Republicans Becky Edwards and Dixon Pitcher and Democrat Joel Briscoe. The bill, currently called HB403 promises an economically viable way to help clean our air and stabilize a changing climate, while stimulating the economy.

The U. S. League strongly endorsed “carbon pricing” as a strategy for curbing climate change, and their senior legislative policy manager, Jessica Jones Capparel, has endorsed the Utah carbon swap bill in particular. In response, the Utah League has endorsed the bill and members of the LWVUT Legislative Action Committee are working to advance the bill as far as possible in the 2019 Legislature.

Four Units will host CCL speakers the week after Thanksgiving, while the Town Club will host them on January 9 and Park City at a time yet to be decided.

Come and learn how the Utah carbon swap bill could reduce emissions, how statewide support could be built to pass the bill, and how you can help – regardless of how much or how little time you have to give.

For a head start on the discussion, you can peruse these one-page summaries of the bill and also revel in a resolution passed by the 2018 Utah Legislature that opens the conversation to find economically viable ways to curb carbon emissions.
