Senate bill 5126 is a divisive bill, although it is a cap and trade on pollution, or an emission pricing bill it has divided the environmental cartel. The climate justice arm of the environmental community feels there is not enough being done to provide better air quality and that there is not enough of the proposed revenue from this bill directed at environmental justice programs. Many in the environmental community believe it will reduce carbon pollution but preface that belief on increased revenue for a carbon free future. A 95% reduction in carbon is lauded, though the blessings promised rely on building new style buildings as well as retooling existing buildings, those in favor of this notion call the bill a cap and invest program, though it is not specified how all the work would be accomplished with carbon free methods.

Today we are in the midst of the legislative session with 38 days left for bills to become law. There have been 2 cutoff dates met and we are nearing the point where bills heard in the house of origin must pass a floor vote in order to be heard in the opposite house. There is still time to fight bad bills that may have passed the house of origin but have not yet made the transition to the floor of the opposite house.

The internet is abuzz with news and opinion on the World Economic Forum(WEF) and its project to reset the world to its liking. Apparently, this organization believes their version of a Eutopia World State is given a boost by the worldwide pandemic of Corona virus and its iterations of tyrannical governance. It is being called The Great Reset. This is the link to their website. https://www.weforum.org/ where you can find this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHRkkeecg7c and many, many more. This is a well-financed organization.

We are about half-way into the 2020 Washington State legislative session and are dealing with the legislative clearing 1200 new bills in addition to bills that did not pass last year being forced through the session for yet another try having been thwarted last session. The most important way to back up the minority fighting for you and your rights in Olympia is to call legislators and thank them, or if your legislator has shown a tendency to vote in favor of bills you disagree with, be sure to call, and email to show your disapproval. 800 562 6000
