Inslee signs climate-change bill: ‘We are … destined to defeat carbon pollution’
SEATTLE -- Gov. Jay Inslee on Tuesday celebrated what he calls his first big achievement since taking office, a bill that will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Washington. Even though the topic of climate change is fraught with politics, the bill the governor signed into law Tuesday made it through the Legislature with bipartisan support. It’s an attempt to make good on a promise state lawmakers made a few years ago to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the level they were at in 1990.
