Today you have an opportunity to protect Washington families from the dirty and dangerous TransAlta coal plant.The
Washington State House has introduced a bill that will protect our
families from the damaging health effects of the TransAlta coal plant by
accelerating the phase-out of coal burning at the plant. The
legislation will also ensure a fair and planned transition beyond coal
for the community. Our legislators need to hear from you about the
importance of protecting our health and environment from dirty coal. Urge Representative Jinkins to stand firm against coal!

We Want a Coal-Free Future
Dear Representative Jinkins,
Thank you for your leadership in working to to end coal pollution in Washington state. By co-sponsoring HB 1825, you will help us address the pollution from our state's only coal-fired power plant. The nearly 40-year-old TransAlta coal plant is our largest single source of toxic mercury, air and climate pollution. Our state is at a crossroads, and HB 1825 will ensure a healthy transition from coal. This bill will ensure that TransAlta pays a decommissioning fee to cover the costs of cleaning up the polluted land and water it leaves behind. It provides funding to make job-creating investments in the local community. And it will bring the plant into compliance with our state's pollution-reducing Emissions Performance Standard. I am very concerned about how the pollution from this plant affects our health and our natural resources including Puget Sound, salmon and our peaks' glaciers.. Washington state can have a clean environment and a healthy economy, and this bill will provide the time and responsible planning needed to transition us to a cleaner energy future.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
