Washington, D.C. – The Alliance for Market Solutions (AMS) issued the following statement in response to the anti-carbon tax measure introduced today in the House.

“Those who oppose a carbon tax are rallying their defenses for a reason: they see supporters gaining momentum,” said Alex Flint, Executive Director of AMS. “A revenue neutral carbon tax that replaces burdensome regulations is a good, conservative idea. It is much more efficient than regulations, and the revenue can be used to reduce other taxes and grow the economy. We recognize the politics today are difficult, but they are going to change.”

The Alliance for Market Solutions (AMS) aims to create a conversation among conservatives on the benefits of market-oriented solutions to one of America’s pressing economic challenges: advancing clean energy and reducing carbon pollution. AMS believes in the need for pro-growth solutions for our economy, replacing harmful government regulations, and responding to changing public attitudes and demographics.

Alliance for Market Solutions (AMS) is an organization of conservative leaders with experience in business, government, and the intellectual community who know that markets and economic incentives are the most powerful drivers of change and are more efficient and effective than top-down regulation. We aim to educate conservative policymakers on the benefits of market-oriented solutions to one of America’s most pressing economic challenges: advancing clean energy and reducing carbon pollution.

The carbon tax policy we support is consistent with a pro-growth conservative agenda. It would replace costly regulations and prevent new regulations from burdening families and job creators. And it would eliminate economically harmful taxes on investment and family incomes.

AMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. We don’t engage in electoral politics on behalf of any candidate, campaign or party. We are recruiting allies and developing policy analyses to help conservative policymakers consider a pro-growth, conservative carbon tax policy.
