Cap and trade is being called the largest tax hike increase in U.S. history and its effects will fall hardest on states that depend on industry.   The Consumer Energy Alliance is holding events next week across Michigan and South Dakota to dig into the ramifications cap and trade will have on business.  Lunch will be provided.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what this legislation could mean for your business and family.
