A nonpartisan way to estimate how Carbon Washington's proposal would impact you

We created this website to provide votors a nonpartisan estimate on the impacts of Carbon Washington's proposal and not to advocate for or against the proposal.

We aim to be transparent about how all our values are calculated and what assumptions we've made. That's why we've posted our full methodology report for those who are curious.
