McIntyre Votes NO on Climate Change Bill

U.S. Representative Mike McIntyre announced today that he voted no on controversial climate change legislation.

Congressman McIntyre stated, "God's beautiful earth must be protected and preserved, but this bill is not the answer. It will cost jobs, increase electricity rates, pass on financial burdens to the next generation, and hurt ourselves in this global economy. It would potentially allow more jobs to go overseas to countries who do not comply with the same standards.

"My commitment in Congress has been to help working families and keep Southeastern North Carolina moving forward. During these challenging economic times, this bill is a hardship that our citizens and communities cannot afford."
