Barrasso: Proposals that Impose a Cost on Carbon will Hurt American Families

March 25, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), issued the following statement on proposals that establish a cost on carbon.

“Proposals that impose a cost on carbon will hurt American families,” said Barrasso. “This will lead to higher electricity bills and gas prices for American consumers. Spiking Americans’ energy costs while our economy recovers from a global pandemic is a disastrous idea. That might be good for international energy companies, but it’s a cost the American people can’t afford.”
