Senator Bernie Sanders' infrastructure proposal includes costly energy regulations and taxes that would cost your families hundreds of dollars annually.
Among the misguided proposals are:
- A cap-and-trade program that goes further than the rules in the Obama Clean Power Plan. It would cost American families hundreds each year on their energy bill.
- New energy taxes to benefit electric car owners in New York and California who don’t need the help.
- A California-style ban on gas-powered cars, even though the vast majority of Americans don’t think we should ban gas-powered cars.
- Hundreds of billions of dollars in handouts for unproven, unreliable energy sources.
These proposals would give Washington more control over your day-to-day life and would cost taxpayers. Sign this letter to tell your lawmakers to oppose this bill, and to come up with an infrastructure bill that actually meets our nation’s needs.
