2 Limiting Carbon Emissions o Regulatory controls o Market mechanisms Carbon cap-and-trade Carbon tax 2 Economy Carbon Tax Revenue Carbon Emissions

3 Methodology | Modeling Overview 3

4 Summary o Minimal Economic Impacts with Positive Growth Expected in All Scenarios Tax Could Slightly Decrease Growth Rate o Revenue Use Drives Net Impacts o Significant Emission Reduction and Revenue Generating Potential 4

5 Estimated Price Changes o Gasoline: ~$0.01 increase per $1/ton carbon price o Natural Gas: 3-31% price increase ($10/ton - $100/ton) o Electricity: 1.5-5% increase ($10/ton) to 17-51% increase ($100/ton) 5

6 Higher the Price, More Emissions Reductions 6 See Results: Carbon Tax Scenarios for full breakdown of emissions results

7 Significant Revenue Generated 7 $4550 $4020 $3450 $2350 $1870 $1350 $490 See Results: Revenue for breakdown of revenue estimates

8 Results | Oregon Economy Basics 2013 Employment = 1,679,377 GDP = $219,590,000,000 Real GDP growth = 4.4% Total Compensation = $97,755,000,000 Population = 3,930,065 Annual State Budget (General + Lottery) = $8.2 billion 8
