Impacts of the Clean Air Rule

The Clean Air Rule reduces carbon pollution in Washington while still allowing for business growth. This is accomplished through the use of a reserve which acts like a savings account for emission reductions. When the reserve has extra reduction units they can be used to support projects with positive environmental justice impacts. An environmental Justice Advisory Committee will help select these projects.

Read a summary of the economic impact reports.
