It seems to me that Chester Crandell has forgotten who he represents and works for.
The question is not is global warming real, but how will improving energy efficient standards impact the pocketbook of the people who vote for him. Anything that we do to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and cars will make America safer and put dollars in our pockets.
As an example, I just traded in my 2001 Toyota for a 2005 Toyota and saw an immediate savings of just over 10 percent. This might not sound like much, but when it cost almost $50 to fill up the car a 10 percent savings will mean real money in my pocket every month.
Remember that every dollar you save by not having to pay a utility company is money you can use to buy other things you might need.
I am angry at the graft in Washington, but right here in Payson our own representatives, like Chester Crandell, are taking money from lobbyists and sponsoring legislation that will take money away from us.
So, if you think that Chester Crandell’s bill being sponsored by the Arizona Home Builders is going to put money in your pocket because they will just be nice and build a better more efficient home, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I will sell you; otherwise it is time we throw these bums out of office that want to do nothing but hurt the people that vote for them.
