Letter to Ohio House:


I am writing to request your support of HCR-25.

The "Cap-and-Trade" bill, HR 2454, recently passed in the United States House of Representatives and currently pending in the United States Senate, is really nothing more than a thinly disguised energy tax that will hit every single American. And the "Waxman-Markey" proposal would unfairly target states, like Ohio, that rely on coal for electricity. Many utility companies would likely switch to other fuel sources. For Ohio this could mean a loss of 86 thousand jobs just a few years from now. If those jobs were lost today it would increase Ohio's unemployment rate from 9.7 percent to 11.1 percent. Energy companies just pass the costs of these draconian regulations through to the consumer in the form of huge price increases. Your constituents will ultimately have to pay more for electricity. An average family could pay an additional $1,500 a year for energy. That's 4.8 percent of Ohio's per capita disposable income.

This current economic crisis is no time for Congress to consider both raising prices on hard-working Americans AND costing them jobs.

Please support HCR-25 to urge the Congress of the United States to refuse to enact cap and trade legislation.


About Cap and Trade:



By a final vote of 219-212, HR 2454, the Cap-and-Tax scheme, has passed the US House. The fight moves to the US Senate now, where the bill faces an uncertain future.

Since this is such a high priority issue for the Obama administration, it's amazing that the margin was this thin. Incredibly, 44 Democrats voted against the legislation.

This proposal, all 1,201 pages of it, has been rightly dubbed the "Cap-and-Tax" plan. Once again, Congress will impose a hidden tax on all of us while attempting to appear "proactive."


On Tuesday, June 30, The Ohio Senate passed (21-11) SCR-15 (http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/res.cfm?ID=128_SCR_15) to urge the US Congress NOT to enact Cap and Trade legislation.

State Representative Kris Jordan (http://www.house.state.oh.us/index.php?option=com_displaymembers&task=detail&district=02) has introduced HCR-25 (http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/res.cfm?ID=128_HCR_25) in the Ohio House of Representatives "To urge the Congress of the United States to refuse to enact cap and trade legislation that would negatively impact Americans through the elimination of jobs and by increasing the costs of goods and services and instead enact legislation that encourages states to establish and develop their own renewable energy portfolio standards."

Please contact your State Representative and urge their support of HCR-25 (http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/res.cfm?ID=128_HCR_25).

It's great that the State of Ohio is fighting against the Cap & Trade bill in Congress. However, I wonder why other States aren't doing the same thing in their legislatures. Clearly, this bill can be fought against on the grounds that the federal government has no Constitutional jurisdiction to impose energy taxes nor laws upon the States. Such reasoning needs the backbone and prudence of the several States.

this is very kewl, it will be very interesting how the FEDS and MSM react to this.

I'm sure FED funds will be held hostage if this passes in OH. Blackmail, Racketeering, and Extortion are the top three functions of Washington DC. I hope OH is prepared for a fiscal fight.

Hey Ho, Way To Go, O-HI-O.
