Washington House passes clean-fuels legislation sought by Inslee

210

“Gov. Jay Inslee and some lawmakers are also proposing to phase out fossil fuels in power production, phase out hydrofluorocarbons, boost electric vehicles and increase energy conservation standards in buildings. Inslee is running for president with an almost singular focus on climate change.
House Bill 1110, which would lower the greenhouse-gas emissions from transportation fuels, passed 53 to 43. After the vote, sponsor and state Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, D-West Seattle, called it “the most important climate bill the House has ever passed.”
