Rep. Drew MacEwen calls carbon tax proposal a “dagger to the heart of the rural economy”


Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, tells iFiberone Newsradio KMAS he will not be forced into voting for a carbon tax because of the perceived threat of a ballot initiative if proposals die in the Legislature. Appearing on “Daybreak with Jeff Slakey,” MacEwen also responds to the recent decision by Public Lands Commissioner Hilary Franz to cancel the state's lease with Cooke Aquaculture Pacific following last August's net-pen collapse releasing non-native salmon into the Puget Sound.
