ALEC to States: Repeal Renewable Energy Mandates
ALEC adopts Electricity Freedom Act and discusses it on Master Resource (a free-market energy blog).
“As the debate over subsidies, handouts, and cronyism for renewable energy continues, so too will the debate surrounding state-based renewable energy mandates.

Households in 29 states are and will continue to see higher electricity rates, lower economic growth and, subsequently, lower standard of livings without outright repeal of these crony capitalist policies.”
