Chambliss' Statement On Boxer, Kerry Climate Bill

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, D.C.

U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Ranking Republican Member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the following statement regarding legislation released today by U.S. Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) addressing climate change:

"As I have stated many times before, I want to support legislation that addresses climate change and provides a more secure energy future for America. Unfortunately, the legislation introduced today by Senators Boxer and Kerry follows the House-passed bill down the path of higher energy costs, job losses and economic pain for no benefit. Further, it would only hurt farmers, ranchers and forest landowners and provide them no opportunity to recoup the higher costs they will pay for energy and the other inputs necessary to work the land. I cannot support this bill."
