Texans will pay a price for cap and trade if it passes the U.S. Senate

Barry Smitherman is the Chairman of the Public Utility Commission here in Texas. According to his recent op-ed piece in the Houston Chronicle, "the proposed climate change legislation [ cap and trade] , intended to reduce carbon dioxide emissions over the next 40 years, will substantially raise electricity bills. An analysis recently released by ERCOT, the electric grid operator for most of Texas, joins other reports from around the country that project significant job losses and dramatic increases in the cost of electricity if this legislation is enacted."


Yet another reason to contact your U.S Senator and urge this bill be defeated in the Senate.
