CEA president: LCFS will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but may lead to severe economic and security consequences for citizens of Washington

HOUSTON – April 6, 2010   As Washington governor Christine Gregoire continues to weigh the prospect of imposing a Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) on her state, Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) president David Holt sent a letter to the governor yesterday laying out several specific facts and figures related to the potential impact of an LCFS on Washington – facts the governor should consider before taking another step forward on the initiative.

Holt’s letter is in response to the governor’s May 2009 executive order instructing her administration to assess the merits of enacting California’s LCFS or a similar proposal to help meet the state’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
