2016 AEC Carbon Panel: Where is the Pacific Northwest’s Carbon Policy Headed?

There has been a great deal of wondering and speculation about what new carbon policies could arrive in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia over the next few years. The upcoming carbon tax initiative (I-732) in Washington has accelerated this discussion, and we are glad to have policy experts on hand to tell us about what to expect from a policy perspective, and what these potential actions could mean for the industry.

We will be joined by Keith Phillips, Special Advisor on Climate and Energy Policy for Governor Inslee, Oregon Senator Lee Beyer, Chair of the Senate Business and Transportation Committee, Jeff Burks, Principal and Director of Sustainability and Climate Change Practice for Energy Strategies, and Steven Peterson, Regional Economist and Clinical Assistance Professor at the University of Idaho, College of Business and Economics.
