OCA responds to PUD misstatements about I-732

On May 9, members of OCA presented this statement to Clallam County PUD commissioners regarding their ill-considered opposition to I-732, the state carbon-tax initiative that will be on the ballot in November.

In spite of substantive refutations from OCA, OCA members, and a representative from the I-732 campaign, pointing out that I-732 will have very little economic impact on Clallam County and will help rather than hurt those most strapped to pay their electric bills, the PUD commissioners passed their anti-732 resolution anyway.

OCA will continue to educate the PUD commissioners and the public on these issues.  Sitting back and doing nothing will not make the climate crisis go away.
