Research shows that an especially efficient way to do that would be to use a tax on greenhouse gas emissions to fund pro-growth tax reforms. A well-designed, economy-wide carbon tax could also help the United States achieve its emissions targets under the Paris Climate Agreement, lower conventional air pollutants, replace less efficient and effective Clean Air Act regulations, and eliminate the need for disparate state-level measures. It could also help pay for infrastructure investments, an expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit, and other priorities.
