The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, H.R. 7173 was introduced on the Hill on November 27, 2018 by Democratic Representative Theodore Deutch, FL-22, with Republican and Democratic cosponsors.
The bill places a fee on fossil fuels like coal, gas, and oil. The money collected from the carbon fee will be distributed in equal shares each month to the American people to spend as they see fit.
The carbon dividend trust fund will encourage market-driven innovation in clean energy technologies that will reduce carbon pollution.
