Chapter 173-446B WAC

We propose a new rule Chapter 173-446B WAC, Climate Commitment Act Funds Reporting. The rule will establish reporting requirements for recipients that receive cap-and-invest auction revenue, so we can complete annual reports to the Legislature, as required by the Climate Commitment Act (RCW 70A.65.300).

This rulemaking may consider:

  • Defining what, when, and how recipients must report their expenditures to us.
  • Outlining the process to:
    • Determine whether a project reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
    • Calculate the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions reduced.
