This proposal suggests a fee on carbon dioxide emissions, and earmarks the revenue for redistribution to select groups and climate-related expenditures. In principle this could have merit, but the proposal needs to develop key details, specificity and analysis. For example, the relative roles of federal and state governments are need to be specified. The proposal lists a variety of way the revenue could be used, which provides a useful set of options rather than a proposal. The proposal would benefit from having the collection, distribution, purpose of funds and key decision makers more clearly established.
