House committee to hear expensive fuel standard bill tomorrow

Tomorrow at 8 A.M., the House Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources Committee will meet to hear SB 11, the Clean Fuel Standard Act. This bill would amount to a gas tax with the funds directed straight into the Environment Department, the same bureaucracy that would be tasked with regulating fuel. This kind of legislation has been implemented in other states and has produced little in the way of cleaner air and has done so at great cost to everyone who buys fuel.
