CALL SCRIPT: Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am calling to ask that Council Member [NAME] passes the strongest possible version of the Oil Heating Tax ordinance. The most important thing this bill does is it sets a 2028 deadline for when Seattle’s housing stock will have entirely transitioned away from oil heat. I ask that Council Member [Name] support this legislation, and opposs any potential amendment that would extend the 2028 deadline. We have a climate crisis and we can’t wait to transition away from fossil fuels. Thank you for taking my call.
