Social Purpose Corporation in Washington State

From Washington State Senator David Frockt’s blog:

“HB 2239 establishing a new type of corporate form in Washington: the social purpose corporation. Frockt prime sponsored the Senate companion (along with Senators Chase and Kilmer) and worked with his former House colleagues Jamie Pedersen and Roger Goodman to move the legislation to the governor’s desk. This measure establishes a new and innovative corporate form that will allow entrepreneurs and companies more flexibility to adopt corporate goals other than maximizing profits. “

Includes provision that the incorporation documents must state a date on which the corporation shall terminate.

Keystone would be way worse than we thought!

We already know that the Keystone XL pipeline is a disaster waiting to happen. But, it turns out that the impact of that tar sands pipeline could be even worse than we thought. According to a new study by the Stockholm Environmental Institute, Keystone could add four times more carbon pollution to our atmosphere than the State Department originally estimated.
