Action Alert from the Carbon Cashback Task Force:  

The Hawaii legislature has introduced two resolutions calling for the National Congress to enact carbon fee and dividend (carbon cashback).  We urge you to reach out to your state-level Senator and Representative and ask them to support the following:

Senate Concurrent Resolution SCR200 (which was introduced by Senator Rhoads and co-sponsored by senators CHANG, GABBARD, KEITH-AGARAN, MCKELVEY)


House Concurrent Resolution HCR124 (which was introduced by Rep. Marten and co-sponsored by representatives GANADEN, HUSSEY-BURDICK, KAPELA, KILA, LOWEN, MIZUNO, and PERRUSO SHIMABUKURO). 

If your Representative and/or Senator are already co-sponsors, please thank them via email or phone.

Carbon Cashback Task Force


The Carbon Cashback Task Force supports a policy designed to reduce emissions in an equitable manner by taxing fossil fuels and returning most of the revenue to Hawaii’s residents through a refundable tax credit.

The Carbon Cashback Task Force 2023 priority is the passage of a carbon pricing policy.

Carbon Cashback was a Golden Opportunity

While this legislative session began positively with the introduction of four carbon cashback bills: HB1146, SB1004, HB1498, and SB1060, they have all died. We've lost the opportunity this year to effectively reduce emissions while benefiting low- and middle-income families.

Many thanks to all who have supported carbon cashback. Your testimony and public support have gone a long way to raise awareness about one of the most effective climate policies. While we did not prevail in this session, we will continue to pursue a carbon cashback policy, locally and nationally.

Speaking of national carbon cashback, there is an effort in the legislature to pass a resolution to encourage Congress to adopt a national price on carbon. There will be an opportunity to testify in support of this resolution.
