Sign your name today and urge lawmakers to oppose cap and trade!
Oregon lawmakers are considering implementing a cap and trade program that would cost Oregon families and small businesses hundreds of millions of dollars each year!
Under their cap and trade proposal:
- Gas prices are expected to increase by 16 cents per gallon in just the first year.
- Natural gas rates would increase by double-digits in year one, rising by as much as 53% in later years.
- Farmers and ranchers already operating on thin margins could be forced to raise their prices or find it harder to stay in business.
- Good-paying jobs in industries like manufacturing would be put at risk.
All this for a program that experts have said would have virtually no positive environmental benefits. Cap and trade is all pain, no gain for Oregonians.
