This bill would create a $10/ton tax on carbon from large emitters like power plants and refineries but allow for large emitters to offset their taxes with investments in low- or carbon-free energy production or manufacturing.

SB 189 was heard by the Senate Energy Committee on February 7 and the committee is expected to take action soon.
