Yes On 1631

What this campaign has shown is you can bring diverse voices, from every corner of our state together around a common solution. Despite the most money spent in our state's election history and an unprecedented mis-information campaign from out-of-state oil companies, Washingtonians took an other step forward towards solving this challenge. We were not successful in passing this initiative but this coalition of tribal nations, communities of color, health professionals, environmental and clean energy advocates, labor unions, businesses, and faith leaders stands ready to continue this fight.

The solution may change but our values and goals remain the same. We will continue to center the voices of those most impacted by pollution and work for a just transition for communities in our state so that everyone can share in a clean energy future.

The growing problem of climate change will only get worse the longer we delay solutions. This issue is not going away and neither are we. We stand ready to fight in next year's legislature and beyond, together.

I think you should all be so proud that you got 850,000 people to say YES! That is amazing! You are an inspiration! Don’t stop!

This coalition needs to stick together and press the legislature.

"I'm so fucking proud of you guys!"

We'll keep fighting the good fight and spreading the word about legislation that is necessary to make green energy the status quo! Proud to have taken a stand with all of you wonderful supporters.

You need to press the state legislature to pass this. If they stand up for what’s right they will do the right thing, but they didn’t earlier this, what are the chances this time? There needs to be a concrete plan on where this money will be spent. Voters need to know how much subsidized home solar they will be able to qualify for, or exactly how big of a rebate on a qualifying long range electric vehicle would be before a bill like this gets a yes vote from the low income areas of WA. The low income need to know how much in energy rebates they are going to get from the state before voting yes. I live in a county where it was defeated by 70% because a 14 to 59 cent increase in gasoline would have hit them very hard. It’s not big oil’s money and false advertising that caused this to lose. The plan simply needs to be better.

heroes and sheroes and awesome humans every one of you!

I believe much more advertising was necessary, I saw hardly any. The only signs I did see went up on the final day. 😞 We have to continue the fight though! ♻️💚 it’s not over.

We will all just move to

It's not over. We got to start over.

and, no, it wasn't the advertising money spent, it was the details that you lost me with. we are not all dazzled into stupidity by an overabundance of tv ads.

I am sad but also knew when my mother, significant other and their 2 friends who are heavy supporters of the environment (have even worked with politicians on issues for environmental isduesin past) voted No, that we had a problem. It was written confusing and as everyone knows, heavily funded by the opposition. I live in Clark County and didn't see one, not ONE, sign while driving around town that said to Vote yes... Didn't see one ad and only read 1 article in our local Paper that was neutral about it all. My hubby also voted no due to "we will have to pay and the companies won't" belief...

I consider myself environmentally concerned, but I could not vote for this. It exempted too much, punished/taxed too little, needed to be revenue-neutral to the average WA State taxpayer ... too many things wrong with it for me to vote in favor. Come back with something smart that will affect real change and I'll vote yes.

It was great to be a part of this. Dealing with cranky people when calling or a wet afternoon when canvassing was worth it for this! Now I’m trained for future elections!!

The only county this idiotic bill passed in was liberal King County. You must like paying high taxes. Quit trying to raise everyone else's.

There is always next election. Money is needed to counter the funds that went to No on 1631.

People won’t care until pollution is killing their children.

Hey. Now that this horrible tax was defeated can you please get rid of your signs (made from petroleum products) from Shuster Parkway and Ruston Way in Tacoma?
