Spokane City Council members have drafted an ordinance which acknowledges human-caused global warming and reaffirms the City’s commitment to local, state, national, and global climate change mitigation efforts. The proposed legislation sets a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in the city of Spokane by at least thirty percent (30%) below the 2005 baseline level by the year 2030.
We need YOU to write or call your council member TODAY to express your support for this important climate legislation!
The City Council plans to vote on the ordinance at the July 17 City Council Meeting. Please mark your calendars to attend the meeting at 6pm on Monday, July 17th in the Council Chambers Lower Level of City Hall. We are organizing for a strong show of citizen support for climate action at the July 17th meeting. Come give your public testimony in support of this ordinance, or just show your support with your presence at the meeting.
