Description This report describes the comprehensive plan for Washington State to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and expand our clean energy economy. It presents a coordinated set of policies—including incentives, regulations, and disincentives to meet the GHG emission reductions that were adopted into law in 2008. The required reductions are:

*Return to 1990 GHG emission levels by 2020.
*Reduce emissions 25 percent below 1990 levels by 2035.
*Reduce emissions 50 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.
