2015FallQ25Now I would like to ask you a few questions about government policy designed to reduce green house gas emissions. The federal government has introduced a Clean Power Plan that is designed to reduce greenhouse gases from power plants. The plan lets states pick from a series of options in deciding on how to reduce power plant emissions. For each of the following policy options I read please indicate if you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose, or strongly oppose your state adopting that policy as a means of reducing emissions? Allowing businesses to buy and sell permits to release greenhouse gases to reduce greenhouse gases. This policy is commonly referred to as cap and trade.cpp

2015FallQ26If a cap and trade system was to be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Power Plan, would you prefer that it be done only within an individual state, by multiple states working together, or with ALL states working together.captrade

2015SpringQ31Some states and a number of other nations have adopted a policy that requires electric utilities to sell or trade allowances tied to their emissions of greenhouse gases. These allowances can be distributed through an auction process that may increase the cost of energy for consumers and also produce funds for government. This policy is commonly known as cap-and-trade and is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To the best of your knowledge has your state adopted such a program?state_captrade

2015SpringQ33In addition to the states that already have a cap and trade program, some other states are considering such a program to comply with federal requirements to reduce greenhouse gases from power plants. There are a number of different policy options in setting up a cap and trade program, though. For each option that I mention please tell me if you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose your state adopting such a policy. First, would you support a cap-and-trade program in your state if it increased energy costs but used all revenue to reduce other taxes?state_captrade

2013FallQ27There is a proposed system called cap and trade where the government would issue permits limiting the amount of greenhouse gases companies can put out. Companies that did not use all their permits could sell them to other companies. The idea is that many companies would find ways to put out less greenhouse gases because that would be cheaper than buying permits. Have you heard a lot about this system, a little, or not at all?captrade

2013SpringQ33California has begun to auction greenhouse gas allowances for large industries. Under this policy large industries can use those allowance to emit greenhouse gases to an established level or they can sell or trade those allowances to other businesses if they are able to lower emissions below the permitted level.
