_mg_7610_2 Today businesses, labor, faith, sportsmen and environmental organizations came together and had a rally next to the Capitol building in support of the Climate Security Act. Several senators spoke to the crowd and media about the importance of passing the bill and how it will reduce greenhouse gases that cause global warming, create new jobs and protect our natural resources. Co-sponsors Senator Lieberman (I-CT) and Senator Boxers (D-CA) led other senators in warning about opponents of the bill trying to distract the public on claims the Climate Security Act would hurt the economy. This will be a tough battle, so we should heed the senators’ warnings and get the facts and move this bill forward._mg_7581_2
