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.
