    Murkowski Resolution Update

    05/11/2010

    It looks like the long-awaited Murkowski Resolution of Disapproval will be up for vote shortly.  Many readers have taken action to urge their Senators to cosponsor the bill (if you haven't, do so here) and these efforts have helped bring the bipartisan support up to 41 cosponsors. 

    The Murkowski Resolution is an important measure to stop a backdoor cap and trade plan from being implemented by the EPA.  The EPA would love nothing more than to have free-reign in regulating CO2.  That means a host of new regulations heaping new costs on energy and the price of doing business in the United States.  Worst of all, this would all be done by un-elected bureacrats who are not accountable to taxpayers and would have little to restrain their decisions.

    The Murkowski Resolution would stop the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases, saving jobs and money during these tough economic times.

    Here is a list of Senators who need to hear from you today - please call and urge them to vote "Yes" on the Murkowski Resolution.  You can find a list of talking points here.
