North America’s Building Trades Unions fight every day for America’s construction workers – seeking better work opportunities, increased wages and protecting benefits.
That’s why they’re so alarmed about S. 517 – the so-called “Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act.”
It’s a bill that, if passed, will let Washington mandate even HIGHER ethanol standards for our gasoline than the current 15 percent. As the Building Trades Unions observe, it will add to the already high costs of ethanol compliance – and it will cost thousands of Americans their jobs.
The Building Trades has written to Senators John Barrasso (R-WY) and Thomas Carper (D-DE) to oppose the bill, which will come before the Senate Energy and Public Works Committee, on which Senators Barrasso and Caper both serve, as chair and ranking member, respectively.
