Folks in the 7th Congressional District may be interested to know that at the Wisconsin Conservation Congress 2021 virtual spring hearings, Wisconsin residents endorsed a resolution supporting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.
The resolution calls on the Wisconsin Conservation Congress to “encourage the U.S. Congress to enact carbon fee and dividend legislation with the intent of reducing CO2 emissions, benefitting conservation, and stimulating technological innovation and economic growth through revenue recycling.”
Of the 8,435 Wisconsin residents who voiced an opinion, 59 percent approved it and 41 percent opposed it. In the 7th Congressional District, the resolution passed in 16 of the 26 counties wholly or partially within the district, with 54 percent of the votes cast being in favor of the resolution.
The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act—currently pending in Congress as HR 2307— puts a steadily rising fee on carbon-dioxide emitting fuels and returns the money to the American people to spend with no restrictions. More information is available at: energyinnovationact.org
