istock green jobsWe’ve written extensively about cap-and-trade systems and why it’s the most fair and effective solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. If you’ve been itching for a chance to get involved and you live in Washington, Tuesday is your day.

On February 3 at 10am, the Washington House Ecology and Parks Committee (John L. O’Brien Building, Hearing room C) and Senate Water Environment and Energy Committee (J.A. Cherberg Building, Hearing room 4) will be holding public hearings on the state’s Cap and Invest Bill.
