Clean Fuel Standard

The Natural Resources Committee asks LWVSC Members to make comments in support of the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s proposed Clean Fuel Standard before January 6.  Your comment might be:  “As a member of the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County, I support A Clean Fuel Standard to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from transportation and to address climate change and protect human health.”
The public has 90 days to provide comment and feedback on the draft rule. Comments can be provided in the following ways:
Mail: Send to the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, 1904 Third Avenue, Suite 105, Seattle, WA 98101
In-person: Public hearing on December 19, 2019, at the Washington State Convention Center, Room 2AB, on Thursday, December 19, 2019, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., 5 – 8 p.m.
 Transportation is the primary source of climate pollution in the Puget Sound region, accounting for over 40 percent of the Puget Sound region’s greenhouse gas pollution.
 In 2017, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s Board of Directors adopted a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas pollution by 50 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, and is considering adopting a regional Clean Fuel Standard to help meet that target. 
The standard would apply to transportation fuels supplied or sold in the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s jurisdiction: King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties.
