Tomorrow, July 29, Americans for Prosperity will co-host a rally at Lincoln Park to protest the latest Environmental Protection Agency’s “far-reaching and controversial” new emission regulations.  The event will be at Lincoln Park in Denver from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.  The event promises a star-studded line-up, including:

  • Former Congressman Bob Beauprez
  • State Rep. Ray Scott – NW CO legislator (Mesa County)
  • Dustin Zvonek – Americans for Prosperity
  • Michael Sandoval – Independence Institute
  • Ray Beck – Craig City Council/Club 20
  • Frank Moe – Craig, CO businessman
  • Mary Frontczak – Peabody Energy
  • Tony Gagliardi – NFIB Colorado-Wyoming
  • Jess La Buff – Boilermakers Montana
  • Jason Dean Small – Boilermakers Montana
  • Greg Kohn – Montana Chamber of Commerce
  • Mark Gordon – Wyoming State Treasurer
  • Bill Schilling – Wyoming Business Alliance
  • Kim Floyd – AFL-CIO Wyoming

This issue promises to have an impact on families across Colorado. We railed against the EPA’s attempts at a listening tour on this issue back in October for the following reasons:

  1. The “townhalls” were occurring in places that didn’t produce coal (e.g., San Francisco).
  2. The proposed regulations would increase energy costs for the middle class.
  3. The regulations would kill jobs in the coal industry, which employs some 750,000 through the country.

Come out to show your support for Colorado’s middle class tomorrow.
