House Takes Wrong Direction on Energy Policy

Download the .pdf of the letter with signatures Dear House Leaders, On behalf of the undersigned organizations representing hundreds of thousands of taxpayers, small businesses, shareholders, consumers and senior citizens, we strongly urge you and your colleagues to reverse the increasingly dangerous direction that the 110th Congress is taking with punitive energy policies that would punish the economy by raising taxes, raising energy prices and driving a death nail into domestic energy production.

Key Vote 'NO' on the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act

On behalf of the nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 2776, the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2007. This energy bill would scale back gains in domestic exploration and capacity that would impose ultimately be borne by consumers. In addition, this bill would increase oil production costs by revising section 199 of the tax code, which would eliminate funds for domestic energy production and exploration in order to provide tax breaks for alternative fuel production. These changes would saddle domestic energy suppliers with costly new taxes that will raise prices for consumers.

Key Vote "NO" on the Udall/Platts Renewable Energy Standard Amendment

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on the Udall/Platts Renewable Energy Standard amendment to the energy package being considered in the House this week. The proposed amendment would create a mandate requiring the use of renewable portfolio standard for generating electricity starting in 2010 with the goal of forcing electric utilities to produce 20 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2020.

Fear and Loathing at Live Earth

BY Matt Kibbe

“I think that they should take a look at what their companies are doing and just ask themselves as human beings whether or not this is the way they want to spend their lives, if this is the way they want to earn a living, if this is the kind of contribution they want to make to the society in which we live.” -- Al Gore

Panda-monium from FreedomWorks North Carolina

WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA.  Twenty-two Freedomworks members from 3 chapters-- McDowell, Macon and Buncombe Counties-- rallied for sensible energy policy and against recent votes in Congress to place price controls on gasoline.  FreedomWorks received press coverage from WLOS TV  ABC and the Asheville Tribune as they rallied outside Congressman Heath Shuler’s Asheville office.

Corn Ethanol Mandates Don't Make Sense

No better example of nonsensical energy policy is the federal indulgence with corn ethanol fuel, a heavily subsidized product that is a net loser for the economy, the environment, and for our energy security.

Key Vote "NO" on Energy Cloture Votes in the Senate

This week, the Senate is debating a series of crucial cloture votes on the future of U.S. energy policy. On behalf of the more than 850,000 Freedom Works members nationwide, I urge you to vote ‘NO’ on cloture for the Senate Finance Proposal, the Reid substitute, and S. 1419. This legislation would damage efforts to secure reliable and efficient energy sources by imposing a series of tax increases that penalize domestic production while diverting resources to more costly alternative fuel sources.

FreedomWorks North Carolina Disappointed in Shuler Vote

Energy prices are driven primarily by a balance between supply and demand. With Americans facing record energy prices, Congress should embrace policies that will expand production and boost energy supplies. FreedomWorks activists have been visiting congressional offices in recent weeks to deliver the message that we need a sensible energy policy that promotes secure and reliable forms of energy at stable prices. What is not needed is sound bit politics that will create red tape and drive up the costs of energy.

Key Vote YES on the Gas Price Act of 2007

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I respectfully urge you to VOTE YES on the Gas Petroleum Refiner Improvement and Community Empowerment Act of 2007, or the Gas Price Act, Senator James Inhofe’s (R-OK) amendment to the energy bill currently before the Senate. This amendment would help stem the rise of gas prices by pushing for energy independence through an increase in domestic refinery capacity. This amendment would encourage more domestic oil production by easing the regulatory permitting process for the expansion of present refineries as well as the construction of new facilities. In addition, it would spur broader capacity and efficiency by reducing environmental permit hurdles and encouraging construction on closed military bases.
