The collapse of the TCI is an early Christmas present. But our joy may be short-lived.
The carbon tax struck out. TCI struck out. Next up at the plate: the Clean Heat Standard.
TCI DOA? Every New England state is getting cold feet about a regional transportation carbon tax – except Vermont, where the Climate Council is expected to endorse the TCI.
Gov. Scott is not likely to put forth detailed objections to TCI. He’ll raise a few questions, point to pandemic uncertainty, and pay his customary homage to climate change orthodoxy. But he clearly sees that this is just one more elaborately concealed carbon tax. He knows what that will to do families and Covid- stressed businesses, he has opposed that for four years, and he won’t buy it. Good for him.
