Letter Supporting Congressman Steve Scalise's Anti-Carbon Tax Amendment

The Honorable Steve Scalise

Chairman

House Republican Study Committee

2338 Rayburn Office Building

Washington, DC 20515

Dear Chairman Scalise:

On behalf of the American Conservative Union, I am pleased to support your amendment

to the REINS Act. As you state in the amendment, a carbon tax would greatly burden

consumers with higher energy prices and lead to lower economic growth and fewer jobs

for no good reason. We believe it is important the House go on record against this

regressive tax and urge a vote for your amendment with its language intact.

Sincerely,

Larry Hart

Director of Government Relations

American Conservative Union
