Inslee’s fuel mandate to cost – at least – 11,000 jobs
Jay Inslee will tell anyone that will listen that his fuel mandate is the best course for Washington State. How exactly a $1 plus per gallon increase in gas prices is supposed help our state’s economy and working families, he has yet to work out. Yet, that’s not all Inslee has to explain.
Inslee likes to claim that his extreme environmental agenda will open the door to new jobs and spur the economy. But, that’s not what the facts indicate. The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) released a study back in October that concludes Inslee’s fuel mandate would do nothing of the sort. In fact, Inslee’s plan would cost Washington State more than 11,000 jobs over the next five years.
