Press Conference and Seminar to Highlight Job-Killing Impact of RGGI Cap & Trade Scheme

August 10, 2011 J

Americans for Prosperity and state and local elected officials will hold a joint press conference next Tuesday, August 16th in the Town of Somerset to draw attention to the threat posed to seventeen power plants in the Upstate New York Region.

The event is scheduled to take place at 3:30 p.m. at the Somerset Town Hall, 8700 Haight Road, with state Senator George Maziarz, Assemblyman Steve Hawley, Somerset Councilman Daniel Engert, and AFP NJ Director Steve Lonegan to highlight the destructive impact the RGGI Cap & Trade scheme and other burdensome taxes on ratepayers are having on upstate New York.

The press conference will draw attention specifically to the threat posed to AES Somerset Generation Plant and the region’s sixteen other coal plants. Last year, AES Somerset was forced to suspend operations due to economic pressures brought about by the RGGI Cap & Trade program and other regulatory mandates.

The Cartel Screening Coming to Seneca Falls

February 17, 2011 J

As you know, our state and country are faced with a failing public educational system.

In Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address, he declared that New York State ranks first in spending per student and yet ranks thirty-fourth overall in results.

It is not much better on a national level. American 15-year-olds rank 35th out of 57 countries in math and literacy, behind almost all industrialized nations. Yet the U.S. was the biggest spender at 7.6 percent of GDP, or $1.1 trillion in 2007.
