Recently, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill that would change the tax law in our country. The Energy Tax Bill now gets to go before the Senate and they are debating the merits of the tax They are currently looking to see if the bill will have it’s desired effect and encourage developing environmentally responsible projects. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso says this latest version of the bill is a disaster waiting to happen.
The similar energy tax approved by the House has been estimated to cost jobs rather than create them. Barrasso says that a Wyoming family of four should expect to pay more than $400 extra each year under the Energy Tax bill should it become law.
