WASHINGTON, DC—Resources for the Future (RFF) today launched the RFF Carbon Pricing Bill Tracker—a handy tool that allows users to compare the eight carbon pricing bills introduced in the 116th Congress. Modeled on the RFF Candidate Tracker, this new tool demonstrates where there is and is not agreement on the array of policy options for implementing a price on carbon dioxide emissions.
The tool includes basic information (such as whether each bill is a cap-and-trade program or a carbon fee) and also delves into the complexities of each proposal (including whether the price will automatically adjust if emissions targets are not met).
Users can choose to compare all of the bills or select a subset of the bills based on the party affiliation of the sponsors. The tool will be updated as new bills are introduced throughout the current congressional term.
Find out how these bills stack up—check out the RFF Carbon Pricing Bill Tracker now.
