Testimony to Kansas House Energy and Environment Committee

February 14, 2013

Written testimony of James Taylor, senior fellow for environmental policy at The Heartland Institute, to the Kansas House Energy and Environment Committee.

Taylor testifies in favor of a rolling back the state renewable portfolio standard, which harms the economy and the environment. Among the key facts, if Kansas electricity prices mirrored those of neighboring Nebraska and Oklahoma - two states which do not have mandates - the net savings would be enough to balance the state’s budget deficit without raising any taxes or cutting any government services.
