|Description||The Legislature required the Departments of Ecology and Commerce to:
Track progress toward meeting the emission reductions established in this subsection,
including the results from policies currently in effect that have been previously adopted
by the state and policies adopted in the future, and report on that progress.
By December 31st of each even-numbered year beginning in 2010, the departments
shall report to the governor and the appropriate committees of the senate and house of
representatives the total emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) for the preceding two years, and totals in each major source sector. The department shall ensure the reporting rules
adopted under RCW 70.94.151 allow it to develop a comprehensive inventory of
emissions of greenhouse gases from all significant sectors of the Washington economy.
This report, along with the state’s required biennial GHG inventory, satisfies that requirement.
