With the start of the 2016 Legislative Session only two months away, momentum is building for Vermont to support decisive climate policy. Energy Independent Vermont is helping to build a foundation for a Carbon Pollution Tax that will help turn this proposed bill into a significant step to decrease Vermont’s carbon production, while helping Vermonters save money. As we prepare for the start of the 2016 Legislative Session, we’re ramping up our education presentations and outreach.
To do this, please join Energy Independent Vermont<https://www.facebook.com/energyindependentvt/> coalition partners, 350 Vermont<https://www.facebook.com/350Vermont/> and VPIRG<https://www.facebook.com/VPIRG/>, to learn more about the Carbon Pollution Tax. We’ll explore why we need policy that both cuts carbon and supports everyone in this state. We’ll look into what the tax is, learn how it will work, and look at scenarios of how it will benefit Vermonters.
