By Representative Maycumber


    On page 3, beginning on line 20 of the amendment, after "customers" strike all material through "ratepayers" on line 38 and insert "sufficient to meet the utility's proportionate share of statewide emission reduction limits established in RCW 70.235.020(1)(a)"




    EFFECT:  Aligns the electric utility and market customer fossil fuel electric generation resource reduction requirements to be proportionate to the state's greenhouse gas emission reduction limits for 2020, 2035, and 2050 (which tops out at 50% below 1990 levels by 2050), rather than establishing separate reduction requirements for 2030, 2035, 2040, and 2045 (topping out at a 100% reduction from 2017 levels of fossil fuel generating resource electricity delivery by 2045).
