Environment & Energy
We have a responsibility to leave things better than we found them. As your State Senator, I committed to advancing policies and investments in a clean energy economy, fight for a fair transportation system, and work to strengthen our protections for clean air and water.
We must also defend against any new investments in carbon energy infrastructure or attempts to increase oil and coal transport in Washington.
We also need to invest in protecting our communities against climate change. This means tackling the climate gap - lower-income people of color do the least to cause climate change but experience the worst impacts from current pollution and future impacts. Our state will successfully and sustainably reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by centering our policy on the leadership of communities impacted most and ensuring investments are made equitably.
