Washington, DC-The Republican members of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works released the following statement in response to Chairman Barbara Boxer's (D-Calif.) announcement of a markup on the Kerry-Boxer bill (S. 1733) next Tuesday, November 3: 

"The taxpayers expect us to know what this 1,000-page bill costs before we start voting on it. They will only know this if we have a full economic analysis of how Kerry-Boxer affects them. This bill threatens Americans with trillions of dollars in higher energy taxes and millions of lost jobs. Yet as EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson admitted this week, EPA has ‘not run the full economic modeling.' We cannot move forward in the legislative process if we don't have a complete understanding of this bill."
