The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) is beginning rulemaking to adopt Chapter 173-446B WAC – Climate Commitment Act Funds Reporting, as directed by RCW 70A.65.300 (the Climate Commitment Act). This rulemaking will establish reporting requirements for direct recipients of cap-and-invest auction revenue. These reporting requirements will include those related to spending that benefits vulnerable populations within overburdened communities and spending that is formally supported by a resolution of a Tribe.
The rule will define what, when, and how funding recipients must report their spending to Ecology. Additionally, the rule will outline the process to determine whether projects result in GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions reductions. For projects that do, it will outline the process to calculate the quantity of GHG emissions reduced. Reporting from funding recipients will enable Ecology to prepare the annual report it is required to submit to the legislature. To learn more about this rulemaking, visit our rulemaking webpage.
Opportunities for Input
This is the final step in a structured process Ecology has designed to gather your input during the informal comment period. In this final phase, our focus is on gathering feedback on draft rule language. When this comment period closes, we can incorporate your feedback into the rule, which we will propose before launching a formal public comment process.
