I-1631, the carbon tax: Proponents and opponents face off

Both sides, seeking The Herald’s endorsement, met with us as we formulated our opinion.

Proponents and opponents of Initiative 1631 were interviewed by Herald opinion editor Jon Bauer on Sept. 12, 2018.

Participating were proponents Becky Kelley, president of the Washington Environmental Council, and Steve Garey, a Washington BlueGreen Alliance volunteer, on behalf of the Yes on 1631 campaign; and opponents Dana Bieber, spokesperson for the No on 1631 campaign, and Billy Wallace Jr. of the District Council of Laborers in Washington and Northern Idaho.

The Herald editorial board later recommended a yes vote on Initiative 1631.
