Agency:Government of British Columbia
Description:The 1999 British Columbia budget contains measures that will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and partially fulfil some of the Greenhouse Gas Forums recommendations. These include: a commitment to review opportunities for a revenue-neutral tax shift that will encourage "environmentally sound" business practices; a partial sales-tax rebate for factory-produced, alternative-fuel vehicles; and a future motor-fuel tax exemption for ethanol used in gasoline blends, once a commercial-scale ethanol plant is in operation in the province.
