Number 2: Nebraskans will face higher energy bills

While household budgets are stretched too thin and the national economy literally shrinks, now is not the time to raise energy bills on Nebraskans and their fellow American energy consumers—but that’s exactly what this new rule would do.

The Chamber of Commerce report found that the proposed rule would increase electricity costs by $289 billion through 2030 and lower households’ disposable income by $586 billion through that same time period. The report also estimates that consumer spending on energy will increase $17 billion per year from 2014 to 2030.

The majority of Nebraska and some areas North and South of the state would see an annual increase of more than $1.6 billion… Yes, billion.
