Gov. Inslee Rolls Out 2020 Climate Proposal

HeadlineMay 21, 2019

Another Democratic hopeful, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee, unveiled last week the second part of an ambitious plan to tackle climate change as part of his 2020 platform. Inslee says his “Evergreen Economy Plan” will invest $9 trillion over 10 years to create 8 million clean jobs that would also bolster unions, eliminate pay inequity and ensure jobs for workers in the fossil fuel industry. It will also focus on building up renewable energy and environmental research, help upgrade buildings, and update water and transit infrastructure. Inslee previously pledged to make the U.S. carbon neutral by 2045.
