Regarding Initiative 1631:

The official ballot measure summary of Initiative 1631 as authorized by our secretary of state, says: “This measure would impose pollution fees of certain large emitters of greenhouse gas pollutants based on rules determining carbon content, starting in 2020. A public board would supervise spending the revenues on reducing pollution, promoting clean energy, and addressing climate impacts to the environment and communities. Utilities could receive credits for approved investments Indian tribes would consult on projects directly impacting their land. There would be periodic reporting on the measure’s effectiveness.”

Yes on Initiative 1631 means more solar and wind energy.
