Vermont Lawmaker Plans Carbon Tax Proposal

The push for putting a price on carbon has begun in Vermont. Representative Sarah Copeland Hanzas plans to introduce a bill this year .

“A carbon tax is the best idea on the table to keep Vermont moving toward a goal of getting 90 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2050, according to state Rep. Sarah Copeland Hanzas, D-Bradford, who intends to introduce the plan during the upcoming legislative session. “We are kidding ourselves if we think that anything that we’re doing right now is moving us in that direction,” said Copeland Hanzas, who visited the Valley News on Thursday with an official from the Vermont Natural Resources Council to talk about the plan.”
