Demonizing From DC
by

That’s what an Arkansas state legislator accused some in Congress of doing today in testimony before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee:

But Republican Gov. John Hoeven of North Dakota said the legislation under consideration would cause job losses in his oil-producing state. The prospect of a climate change bill already has halted new technologies to harvest oil and natural gas, Hoeven said.

He was joined by Arkansas state Rep. John Lowery, a Democrat and the owner of Lowery Oil Co., who said that while the bill may create green jobs for the West Coast and Northeast, it would harm middle America.

“It might be popular for some in Washington to demonize oil and gas, fertilizer and chemical companies, and farmers,” Lowery said, “but where I come from, they are an integral part of our communities.”

Arkansas was the site of perhaps the greatest state-level blowback against cap-and-tax to date.
