We are business leaders from companies of all sizes
and many sectors calling for your leadership to
ensure America's prosperous, competitive future.
We need you to swiftly enact comprehensive
legislation to cut carbon pollution and create an
economy-wide cap and trade program.
We support this legislation because certainty and
rules of the road enable us to plan, build, innovate
and expand our businesses. Putting a price on
carbon will drive investment into cost-saving,
energy-saving technologies, and will create the
next wave of jobs in the new energy economy.
Climate and energy legislation that caps carbon
and supports clean energy will keep inventions
here, keep innovative companies here, and keep the
newly-created jobs in engineering, manufacturing
and installation here in the US.
For the United States to compete and lead, you must
act. It is time for the Administration and Congress
to embrace this economic opportunity so that our
workers and entrepreneurs can lead the way.
