We write to express our support for your amendment to HR 367, the Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013. The last thing the American people need is a new tax, especially a carbon tax.

A carbon tax would hurt American families by driving up the cost of energy as well as reducing economic growth. According to a study of one popular carbon tax proposal, a carbon tax would reduce the income of a family of four by $1,000 a year, cost the economy over 400,000 jobs by 2016, and increase the price of gasoline by 30 cents a gallon by 2030.
