Letter: Look into HR 763



I would like to encourage anyone reading this to educate yourself on HR 763, commonly referred to as the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. This bill took over a decade to create and is bipartisan. Meaning Democratic and Republican lawmakers worked together to draft the bill. I support it because it is effective, good for the people and the economy and it is also revenue neutral. This policy will reduce emissions, improve health, save lives and, if passed the way it is currently written, will put money back into people’s pockets. The government will not keep fees collected by the dividend tax. Also, it has the potential to create jobs across our state and nation. This bill is another step to drive down our own carbon pollution and a serious step to combat climate change. We owe it to our children to at least try to combat this man-made threat to our very own existence. For more, visit energyinnovationact.org. If you support HR 763 use your voice/computer and contact Congresswoman Susan Brooks and Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young in Washington, D.C.
