The NAM’s Statement on Lieberman-Warner

By June 6, 2008Global Warming

Is here. Excerpt from comments by NAM President John Engler:

Manufacturers are grateful to the 36 Senators on both sides of the aisle who voted to maintain jobs and economic growth in America. The NAM is committed to working with Congress to establish sensible and responsible federal policies that promote stewardship and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  However, these policies must maintain a competitive playing field for American workers and not damage the American economy.

NAM members believe that any commitments made by the United States must be mirrored by comparable commitments by our trading partners, are based on sound science and cost-effectiveness, and are applied equally throughout the economy.
