Measure 732 will impose a carbon emission tax on certain fossil fuels and fossil-fuel-generated electricity, reduce the sales tax by one percentage point, increase a low-income exemption, and reduce certain manufacturing taxes. Beginning in 2017 Carbon dioxide would be charged at a $15 per metric ton and would gradually increase to $100 per metric ton. The measure would use the additional tax revenue to lower the sales tax rate by one percentage point over two years, increase a low-income sales tax exemption, and reduce certain manufacturing taxes. Proponents argue that it will address climate change by cutting pollution. Opponents, including the Sierra Club, argue that revenues from the measure's carbon tax would not be invested in ramping up jobs in clean fuels infrastructure or energy efficiency.  See recent Measure 732 news
