There was a debate organized by the UW Center for Environmental Politics about Initiative 1631 on Tuesday, October 16th 2018 in Gowen Hall 301 and was reported by Leslie Fisher for the UW Daily newspaper.

"The debate featured Nature Conservancy government relations director Mo McBroom and Washington State Labor Council representative April Sims supporting the initiative versus “No on I-1631” campaign spokesperson Dana Bieber and former executive secretary of the Washington Building Trades Council Lee Newgent from the opposition."

The initiative is mainly about a carbon emission fee that will be imposed on companies. The fee starts from $15 per metric ton and Gov. Jay Inslee was said to be in support of it.
