With just two weeks to go in the signature-gathering effort, super signing events are ramping up across the state. Volunteers have mobilized from Camas to Lynden and gathered hundreds of thousands of signatures already. 

Businesses and everyday citizens have come out in strong support of I-2066 to protect energy choice and clean natural gas in Washington state. See just a few of the hundreds of positive responses to I-2066 here: 

With the possibility of a natural gas ban, we are staring down the closure of not just one, but all our locations. Transitioning to electric appliances and heating systems is a daunting and costly challenge.” Kerri – Owner, Lombardi’s Restaurants

We have natural gas installed in our home. It’s clean and cheap. Being retired and on a fixed income, I can’t afford the $40,000-50,000 needed to replace everything with electric appliances. If I have to move, I will, because I can’t afford to make that change.” Craig – Retiree

A phase out and eventual ban on natural gas will hike prices up for my customers. As a contractor and builder, I work hard to keep costs low for new builds, but the reality is that installing all electric in new builds and retrofitting houses will make those costs skyrocket. We need to get people into homes, not make it more difficult for them to access housing.” Corey – Condron Homes

Our business will undoubtedly suffer and will likely close if the state phases out natural gas. Our entire business is built on the availability of natural gas and without it, countless customers, many on fixed incomes in rural areas, will not have access to critical heating and cooking capabilities.” – The Dixons, Olympia Fireplace

Regardless of how hard Puget Sound Energy and HB 1589 supporters deny it, the phase out will have significant negative consequences for families and businesses. Let’s Go Washington and supporters will continue to host events and provide opportunities for Washingtonians to sign the initiative to protect natural gas and energy choice in the state.
