The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) launched a multi-state, multi-million-dollar comprehensive advertising campaign opposing the American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454), also known as the Waxman-Markey climate change bill.

Joining the NAM in the effort are the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the leading small business association representing small and independent businesses, along with several state manufacturing associations in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio and Virginia.

The groups are encouraging manufacturers, small business owners, and the public to Speak Out against the bill and its potentially devastating impact on the economy. The Senate is expected to take up the Waxman-Markey legislation in September. The advertisements will run through September 4 and will include television, radio, and Internet.

The Waxman-Markey bill mandates a cap-and-trade program that governs fuel choices available to businesses and consumers. This bill passed the House of Representatives by a narrow margin (219-212) in June.

The NAM and NFIB are urging senators to oppose any climate change legislation that imposes additional energy costs on already consumers and businesses.
