By Representative Harmsworth
On page 4, after line 37 of the striking amendment, insert the following:
"(7) The fossil fuel reduction targets established under subsection (3) of this section shall not take effect until the governor requests and receives a report from the Northwest power and conservation council that makes a determination that, under a maximum carbon reduction scenario in the most recent power plan, the targets are feasible and cost-effective. Electric utilities must reduce the total number of megawatt hours from fossil fuel generating resources delivered to Washington customers by twenty-five percent compared to a 2017 baseline beginning five years after such a determination is made, with subsequent reduction targets specified under subsection (3) of this section to be met every five years thereafter."
EFFECT: Makes the effective date of the fossil fuel reduction targets contingent upon a determination from the Northwest Power and Conservation Council that, under a maximum carbon reduction scenario in the most recent Northwest Power Plan, the targets are feasible and cost-effective.
