An informal "list"/"tag" where we record all individuals and organizations in favor of the 'Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act' or similar "revenue neutral" carbon schemes.
About the bill itself:
It imposes a fee on the carbon content of fuels including crude oil, natural gas, coal and other derived products which result in greenhouse gases emissions. This fee imposed at the source follows a rate schedule which increases every year. The fee is collected to a Dividend fund which is re-distributed evenly among all US citizens and lawful residents. The bill was introduced to the House in the current Congress, under ref HR 763; it was previously introduced in the Senate of the previous Congress under S 3791. (See references for details).
HR 6463 differs from HR763, for example in that the revenue from the fee on carbon is split 3-ways (Infrastructure rebuild, R&D in the Energy sector and Grants to Low income people), Yet both bills share fundamental characteristics: a fee on carbon, redistribution of the revenue and bipartisan support. For this reason, sponsors, endorsers and supporters at large of HR 6463 are included in this informal list.
About the use of this LittleSis entity:
We try and add a generic relation to this "organization" to all/any individual or organization who strongly favors these bills or similar legislation: legislative sponsors and co-sponsors, endorsers, etc, The generic relation is used to specify the nature of the support ('sponsor', 'endorse', 'advertise'...), showing the date when support started and free text in the notes for details when appropriate.
