Boxer & Kerry Unveil Their Version of a Climate Change Bill

Sens. Barbara Boxer and John Kerry unveiled their version of a climate change bill that uses the Waxman-Markey bill as its template. Short on details, this new bill is expected to be altered during the Senate debate.

However, it’s already clear that the bill is an energy tax on American consumers. As Jack Gerard, API’s president and CEO, says in a statement, “If the Kerry-Boxer approach mimics the House bill, as early indications suggest, it will undermine our energy security by making American consumers more reliant on foreign sources of refined products, kill jobs and increase fuel costs.”
