Environmentalism and federalism with ALEC’s Joe Trotter

“Some states rely on free market principles and innovation to limit manmade emissions into the atmosphere, while others use a more heavy-handed approach by implementing of standards, enacting mandates and pricing schemes that benefit specific types of technologies. However, when the government inserts itself into the energy markets, taxpayers’ foot the bill. Inefficient government mandates driven by political interests often pick winners and losers in individual energy markets, causing, at best, skyrocketing costs through poor investment decisions. In some extreme cases, these regulatory regimes divert regular maintenance funds to shortsighted ideas that cause energy shortages, which can prove deadly.” — Joe Trotter
