I wouldn't say pushing, Arizona doesn't like to be pushed. But there is an initiative. Very controversial, with big implications if passed:

I'll make the link live when I get to my desk. It's actually very interesting how things could change in our state.

Of course, I'm in CT, everythings taxed (& retaxed) here! Buy a car, pay tax, then pay tax every year you own it. Carbon tax, no problem. Counting down the days til Malloy is out. 

According to a July 2016 New York Times survey, Malloy was the most unpopular Democratic governor in the country, with a 64% disapproval and 29% approval rating

Wisen up Connecticut.

Thank heaven no. I have had enough with taxes and this will not curb China, India or Russia from spewing their pollutants to mother earth that are the real problem. Perhaps they could plug those volcanos spewing pollution as well with the politcians with such bad ideas, well intended or not, poor execution.

I don't have a problem with paying taxes when the taxes are put to good and benficial use, whether for the environment, health care, education. My problem is that the taxes are seldom used efficently and often not used for what they were supposedly intended. A number of years ago.. perhaps 5-6 N. Virginia was subjected to an increase in sales tax of 1% for road maintenance and improvement now here we are years later and the roads have never been worse. Politicians on ALL levels need to be held accountable and NOT just at the poles. Now Stepping off my soapbox lol.
