cap-and-trade legislation

Energy is the backbone of our nation’s economy and fighting cap-and-trade legislation that will significantly drive up energy costs. The so-called Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill narrowly passed the House on a vote of 219-212 in June, and the Senate is slated to take up cap-and-trade legislation after the August recess. The Energy Citizens Rallies going on across the country right now are bringing Americans together to tell their senators not to follow the House’s lead in passing legislation that will raise the average American family’s energy bill by as much as $1,500 annually, cost 2 million American jobs, dramatically expand the federal bureaucracy, and make American businesses less competitive.
