Stop Obama’s EPA from Increasing American Energy Costs!
Sign the Petition : 115,644 Letters and Emails Sent So Far
Even while gas prices continue to go up and recent turmoil in Libya and the Middle East further threaten America’s energy independence, the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) keeps pursuing a policy agenda that will only make matters worse.
Specifically, the EPA is trying to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases and essentially enact a backdoor cap and trade scheme.
Congress never intended the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases and doing so threatens to trigger new energy taxes, greatly slow America’s still-recovering economy, and send more jobs overseas to China, India, and other countries.
Fortunately, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and Representative Fred Upton (R, MI-6) have introduced “The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011” (S. 482 in the Senate & H.R. 910 in the House) that would completely strip the EPA of its ability to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases, effectively stopping Obama’s back door cap and trade strategy dead in its tracks.
I urge you to cosponsor and work to ensure passage of this important legislation.
