Rep. Mary Dye to KUOW Radio: Higher price tags of the Climate Commitment Act are ‘a feature, not a bug of the bill!’


Rep. Mary Dye, ranking Republican on the House Environment and Energy Committee, joins KUOW Soundside’s Libby Denkmann to discuss how the state’s Climate Commitment Act has impacted Washington’s citizens and its economy. Dye argues that the carbon auction is a primary factor in increased costs, such as fuel, food, utility bills, and heating homes. She said higher price tags are “a feature, not a bug of the bill.” Dye said Republicans have long argued that Democrats always knew higher costs would come.
