VIDEO: Citizens outraged by new fuel tax proposal

In this week’s video, we discuss House Bill 1110, the so-called “low-carbon fuel standard.” It’s a controversial scheme that could result in price increases of up to 57 cents per gallon for gasoline and up to 63 cents per gallon for diesel. On March 2, 2020, hundreds of hardworking truck drivers and their rigs traveled from across the state to meet at the Capitol to protest the bill. I talked with several of the protesters to thank them for making the trip to Olympia and to hear directly from them how the proposed policy would impact their industry and consumers.
