Congress to vote on a carbon tax


In November 2018, Rep. Ted Deutch (FL-D), who is pictured,  introduced his Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA), a new ‘Carbon tax’ that is expected to be voted on by the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.

According to the official U.S. Congress website, Deutch’s carbon tax bill would “amend the Internal Revenue Code to impose a fee on carbon content of fuels.”

The fuels include coal, natural gas, crude oil, and any other fuels that are produced from these fuels.
