CCL Training: Strategies for Success with Municipal Resolutions

CCL Training: Strategies for Success with Municipal Resolutions

June 18, 2019

Join Sandy Simon, CCL's National Resolutions Project Coordinator, for a training that outlines one of the most impactful ways we can express local political will - through obtaining resolutions in support of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act from our local municipal governing bodies.

City councils and boards of supervisors are in touch with their communities every day, are attentive to local voices, and can send strong messages on behalf of their entire citizenry. Think of local resolutions as endorsements on steroids. When a city, county or state passes one, they are sending a message to Congress on behalf of many thousands of people.

CCL Training: Understanding Economic Support For The Energy Innovation Act

CCL Training: Understanding Economic Support For The Energy Innovation Act

June 15, 2019

Join CCL Research Coordinator Jerry Hinkle for a training that evaluates the climate and health benefits of the Energy Innovation Act and compares them to the policy costs.

Economists wholly support charging for carbon pollution, and many support returning all funds to households. Why such strong support? The recent peer-reviewed literature makes clear that the policy benefits of a revenue neutral carbon tax that refunds all money to households greatly exceeds the policy costs.

From this, supporters will better understand why economists insist a revenue neutral carbon tax is good for the economy and society.
