Summary

Senate Bill 5974 is really about setting up funding resources for transportation spending.

Why this matters

Senate Bill 5974 matters because it creates another account which uses carbon emissions taxes (fines basically incurred on homes and businesses while they claim to be attempting to reduce those so thus this will also not sustain itself if their goal is accomplished) and targets specifically all oil and coal exports out of our state with a new tax. This will drive our exports down thus causing this funding program to fail and further reducing our economic stability.
