Two bills, House Bill 2119 and Substitute Senate Bill 5974 currently moving through the Washington State Legislature, would have created a costly mandate which would raise taxes on fuel exported by Washington manufacturers and could harm our state’s economy. In their current form, these bills also include a ban on gasoline engines.
With your help, Legislators heard from Washingtonians all across the state that this unprecedented and ill-conceived fuel export tax should be removed from the bill. The final package passed without the additional export fuel tax included.
