This is an effort to separate the tax question from the climate change issue. Many climate change proposals at all levels of government include substantial increases in government revenues. We don’t believe it is appropriate to hide tax hike in environmental bills. These bills should be revenue neutral, holding taxpayers harmless by offsetting every dollar of revenue raised through environmental taxes and regulations with tax cuts. This approach allows us to have open an honest debate about whether we should act on climate, as well as having open and honest, and quite separate, debate over the appropriate level of taxes.
