Washington GOP Releases “Power Washington” Energy Plan

At a press conference on November 29, Washington State Republican senators released their “Power Washington” energy plan. The plan responds to current state policies and regulations that aim to eliminate natural gas, mandate electric vehicles, ban new gas-powered vehicles in 2035, and support dam breaching. Senator Curtis King, R-Yakima, advised that the state needs a plan that is “rational, reasonable and then reliable to address our energy and climate needs.” He said that the Republican’s plan advocates “an all-of-the-above approach” and a power grid that is reliable using all sources of energy. The plan includes seven main goals King explained and “thoughtful common-sense ideas that get us where we need to go.” Food Northwest attended a presentation of the plan by Senator King to the AWB Energy Committee earlier this month.
