Washington Governor Jay Inslee is working to revive his plan to charge for carbon pollution and use the proceeds to fund schools.
The Democrat met Wednesday behind closed doors with Speaker of the House Frank Chopp to discuss the issue.
Inslee views it as a twofer. Charge industry for carbon emissions. Then take the money generated and put a chunk of it into fully funding public schools.
Inslee unveiled the idea last December, but it died in the Democratic-controlled Washington House.
