Revenue-Neutral Carbon Fee and Dividend

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 5/23/2017

Preview

The Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution urging the United States Congress to enact a revenue-neutral carbon fee and dividend that would be used to help citizens pay the increased costs associated with a new carbon fee while the nation transitions to a clean energy economy. A national carbon tax on fossil fuels with a corresponding dividend to households would help account for the true coast of fossil fuel emissions. The action would create an effective price signal to shift energy use to safer renewable resources.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.
