What is Carbon Pricing?

Carbon pricing is a practical, effective solution that spurs the transition to a low-carbon, innovation economy. In a time when political progress on the national stage seems to be moving in retrograde, advocating for a carbon pollution fee at the state level is a concrete way companies can lead with their values.

The last few weeks in January are some of the most important of the legislative session. This is the time when legislators pledge to vote for newly filed legislation, a process known as co-sponsoring. If we can get a majority of legislators to cosponsor we can build the necessary momentum to get our bills through to the finish line.
