The PUC just voted to tack a $40. per ton tax on coal-fired electricity. The poor and middle class can least afford this nonsense. It's all because of politics.
Lower the age to 65.
I'm stuck in the middle right now. Retired and on a fixed income and not 70 yet. The senior pass should begin at 65 and not 70. 70 is ridiculously high. And keep the price low. We're trying to pay for electricity, food and prescriptions on pensions.
Current laws are sufficient. We don't need another law on the books.
This bill doesn't deserve to be resurrected. Current laws are more than adequate. My two cents.
Thank you, guys!!!

This would be like Denver losing 50,000 jobs, as the Governor pointed out last week.
Here's a short YouTube video that you may not have seen:
The "solar garden" is a sharp stick in the eye to every coal miner and power plant worker in Routt and Moffat Counties.
If residents want to spend their money on fluff, they can certainly do so.
But remember that Twentymile mine is the number one taxpayer in Routt County.
Just my two cents.
