Boustany Opposes Carbon Tax on Emissions

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D., (R-South Louisiana) issued the following statement after supporting House Concurrent Resolution 24,a resolution expressing opposition with the implementation of a carbon tax on emissions:

"A tax on carbon emissions would not only stunt manufacturing growth, it would kill jobs. It would hurt many industries across South Louisiana while leading to an increase in gas prices and a rise in the cost of electricity for consumers. Businesses across the country would suffer from a carbon tax. This resolution prevents a decline in manufacturing while keeping costs for energy consumers low. Best of all, it keeps those of us performing daily activities, like driving a car, from having a tax levied against us for doing so."
