House Bill 1084 was a bill recently introduced to the legislature in Olympia known as the anti-natural gas bill. This bill was intended to eliminate the use of fossil fuels.
This bill as proposed is harmful to UA members working throughout our Industry. The UA lobbying team partnered with businesses, utilities, and other labor organizations and were successfully able to stop this bill from progressing this legislative session.
During the interim we will be working with stakeholders to craft new legislation that talks about decarbonization and not electrification. This updated bill will not eliminate working-family careers of UA Members.
