The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) has released a draft rule proposing the creation of a new "Clean Fuel Standard" rule on transportation fuels supplied or sold in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties. The rule is intended to reduce regional carbon emissions by 25 percent below 2016 levels and 50 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 through a system of "deficit and credit trading." Adoption of the rule would mean a gas tax of $0.22 - $0.57 per gallon.
