Indivisible Tacoma and environmental groups are focused strongly on the Clean Fuels Standard right now and asking Sen. Steve Conway (LD 29) to support it.
The Clean Fuels Bill (HB 1091) passed the House and now is in the Senate Environmental, Energy, and Technology Committee, which is scheduled to hold a hearing on the legislation on March 10.
The bill, proposed by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, would require the Washington Department of Ecology to adopt rules to implement a CFS by 2023.
The program would limit the aggregate, overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emission per unit of transportation fuel energy to 10 percent below 2017 levels by 2028 and 20 percent below 2017 levels by 2035.
Eligible biofuels, renewable natural gas (RNG), hydrogen, and agricultural and forest waste are among the fuels that could be used to comply with reduce Washington’s GHG emission y 2.7 million metric tons per year by 2030.
The bill would exclude exported fuel, fuel used by vessels, railroad locomotives, aircraft and certain other categories of transportation fuel from the CFP’s GHG emission intensity reduction requirements.
