Vitter: Carbon Tax Discussions Should Be Done Openly

I believe Congress must assert its constitutional responsibility in this important matter. If President Barack Obama and his administration are considering a carbon tax, a revised cap and trade plan, or anything similar, then they must work through Congress to achieve it. We cannot allow them to legislate by administrative fiat, withhold information and circumvent the law.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., will be ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee and a member of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee in the 113th Congress.
