Clean Tax Cuts (CTC)
The Clean Tax Cuts Working Group researches the potential of new free market policy solutions for critical issues stuck in partisan gridlock. One such new idea, Clean Tax Cuts (CTC), applies Ronald Reagan’s supply-side tax cuts to the problems of pollution and climate risk.
A conservative solution with transpartisan appeal, CTC offers something of highest core value for left and right: an ever-cleaner planet and tax cuts; cheaper clean energy and less government, an affordable answer to climate risk, and sustainable growth and prosperity.
To encourage others to get involved in the development of this idea, Rod Richardson presented preliminary findings of this research process at the Earth Day Texas – Clean Capitalism Challenge in Dallas on April 22, 2017

Rod first revealed the idea publicly on Earth Day 2016 through a series of articles in The American Spectator, then through public presentations at AREDay 2016 in Aspen, CO in June, as well as at American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) forums at the Republican National Convention, and in Washington, DC.
You can read the Clean Tax Cuts Charrette Report, generated from the September 2016 event at Columbia University, the CTC white paper, CTC Key Points list, and other CTC background documents within the Media section. Reports from our ongoing charrettes will be posted here when available.
