– Carbon plan: NFIB sees 11,000 jobs lost
“A study released today [October 15] predicted a loss of more than 11,000 jobs in a five-year period should Gov. Jay Inslees plan to impose lower carbon fuel standards be adopted in the state.
In addition to lost livelihoods, the study funded by National Federation of Independent Business minced no words in calling the governors LCFS (Lower Carbon Fuel Standards) what it believes it actually is: a tax on gasoline.
The study, Private Sector Disemployment Effects of a New Low Carbon Fuel Standard in Washington State, was done by NFIBs Research Foundation using the most sophisticated economic modeling (REMI PI+) to draw its conclusions,” quoting the Pierce County Business Examiner.
