Bellingham City Club Program July 27, 2016
Hundreds of citizens obtained the necessary signatures to get the State Legislature to put I-732 on the November ballot. While environmental groups are on board with the goals of the initiative some question the method and the costs.
Our speakers Yoram Bauman, economist and author of I-732 and Jeff Johnson, President of the Washington State Labor Council will explain the initiative and debate the pros and cons of this approach.

Yoram Bauman is a University of Washington PhD environmental economist and founder of CarbonWA, the sponsor of carbon tax proposal (I-732). He has been working on environmental tax reform since 1998, when he co-authored, with Alan Durning of Sightline Institute, the book Tax Shift, which helped inspire the revenue-neutral carbon tax in British Columbia. He is also the co-author of the Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change and the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics. He makes his living as the worlds only stand up economist.

Jeff Johnson is president of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO.  His work at the Labor Council has focused on legislation that improves the lives of working people including among other work, increasing collective bargaining, strengthening workers compensation and working on economic justice and anti-poverty measures.  He has represented labor on numerous committees inside the labor movement as well as serving on external committees including the Workers Compensation Board, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and the Governors Council of Economic Advisors.
