Campaign launched for regional carbon fee

Rhode Island lawmakers are working with environmental advocates to pass legislation that would charge fossil fuel companies for carbon pollution. Democratic Rep. Aaron Regunberg said Thursday he has introduced legislation to set a fee in Rhode Island of $15 per ton of greenhouse gas emissions. The money would be invested in renewable energy. Regunberg says lawmakers and advocates in nine states have formed the "Carbon Costs Coalition" to create a regional carbon pricing system.
