My name is Jamie DeMarco, I work at CCL, and I coordinate efforts across the United States to put a price on carbon at the state level. To get a hold of me, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just as we expect in other forums: To keep the trust and confidence CCL members have with members of state legislatures and their staff we ask that all posts are kept as general questions asked without mentioning specific lawmaker member names or without mentioning specifically what was said in CCL meetings or correspondence.
CCL will support state-level legislation if it meets four criteria:
1) It Reduces greenhouse gas emissions more than existing policies
2) It protects the poor and working class
3) It meshes well with a national price on carbon
4) It is politically feasible
CCL volunteers are actively working on campaigns in Oregon, Utah, New Mexico, Virginia, DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Maine, New Hampshire, Hawaii, and others.
Where ever you are, I hope that this action team will help you plug into carbon pricing efforts in your state.
