The American Energy Alliance began a new $750,000 initiative with a series of radio and television advertisements holding Members of Congress accountable for their votes on the controversial issue of a carbon tax. The first phase of the initiative will include two weeks of statewide broadcast and cable television spots targeting Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and statewide radio spots targeting Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.). Other efforts will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Congress has now had numerous attempts to go on record in support of a carbon tax, and the American Energy Alliance has been watching closely to see where elected officials stand on the issue. When Members of Congress refuse to protect taxpayers from energy and tax policies that will harm American families and small businesses, undermine an economic recovery, and do nothing to achieve the purported benefits to the environment, they deserve to hear from their constituents,” AEA President Thomas Pyle said of the organization’s newest initiative.
