Considering a US Carbon Tax

Considering a US Carbon Tax is a research initiative of RFF’s Center for Climate and Electricity Policy designed to examine the potential impacts of a federal carbon tax and help inform understanding of the fiscal and environmental costs and benefits. CCEP researchers are engaging policymakers, industry leaders, and academic stakeholders on this issue to better understand the key questions about a carbon tax and share research findings.
