Executive on state's new carbon rules: We must act on climate change


King County Executive Dow Constantine releases statement on Gov. Inslee’s new carbon rules.


“Climate change is the paramount challenge for our generation, and we must act. King County has taken strong steps – expanding transit, saving energy in our buildings and facilities, and working with cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a state, we must go even further. Gov. Inslee’s Clean Air Rule helps fulfill our state’s climate goals using existing regulatory tools. Now the Legislature needs to develop more comprehensive, market-based solutions that drive investment in Washington State’s clean energy economy.”
