"NEW SECTION. Sec. 1.
A new section is added to chapter 19.29A
RCW to read as follows:
The legislature finds that Washington is capable of achieving an eighty percent nonemitting electric generation standard in the near future. It is the policy of the state that the aggregate fuel mix for electric utilities in Washington must not include more than twenty percent fossil fuel generation resources by 2025. The standard established under this section is a statewide aggregate standard based on fuel mix information provided to the department. The eighty percent standard must not be determined on a utility-by-utility basis. For the purposes of this section, "fossil fuel" generation resource means coal, natural gas, or petroleum."
