Jay Inslee pushed lawmakers to enact a new charge on industries that release carbon pollution.  Inslee would use the funds raised from the carbon charge to pay for education and transportation.  Republicans responded that such a charge would hurt businesses and that before pumping in more money into transportation, voters need to see more accountability and reform at the Department of Transportation.
