Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a resolution that urges the U.S. Congress to refuse to enact 'cap and trade' legislation, and requests instead that Congress leave this issue to be resolved at the state level.

-Declares that companies would pass the costs of participation in a 'cap and trade' emissions trading system onto consumers, and that many industries that emit greenhouse gases will relocate to countries with less stringent standards if such a system is enacted. -Declares that a 'cap and trade' program would disproportionately affect coal dependent "middle" states such as Ohio, as well as poorer families throughout the United States.
