Recently, the Connecticut State Legislature passed a bill that would slash so-called greenhouse gases associated with global warming.  And while such a plan might seem to be a sensible idea, it’s real impact may be to scorch Connecticut taxpayers.  This, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council, which notes implementation of the law would saddle taxpayers with an additional 1,300 dollars annually for the next thirty years.  This in addition to losing some 17,000 jobs within the next six years as well.  When you also consider that some 61,000 families live below the poverty level, and like 47 other states Connecticut is experiencing budget shortfalls, it appears the global warming bill may not be such a hot idea after all!
