Jack’s statement for post:
“I am on record against cap and trade legislation. It runs completely counter to my goal of creating quality jobs for families in the Commonwealth. I cannot support any measure that would raise electricity rates by hundreds of dollars per Kentucky household and cost our state over 16,000 jobs,” Conway said. “There is an urgent need to preserve and grow Kentucky’s energy and manufacturing industries so we can create jobs. Coal is a valuable resource and that is why, If I am elected to be the next Senator from the Commonwealth, I will fight to ensure its place in our nation’s future.”
Editor's Note: Allison Haley of the Conway Campaign called this morning and chided me for my lack of quotation marks around his opponent's assertion that Conway is for cap and trade. At her request, I am posting his response. Mea culpa, Allison.
