Voters Know Best: American Energy Alliance

November 7, 2018

As the dust settles from the 2018 midterm election, several states have determined the effects of energy-related ballot measures impacting the affordability of energy and consumer choice. American Energy Alliance President Thomas J Pyle made the following statement on the results of some of these energy ballot initiatives:

“What we learned from this election, in states like Colorado, Arizona, and Washington, is that voters reject policies that would make energy more expensive and less reliable to them, their families, and the larger economy. There is little doubt that those who authored the defeated initiatives will try again, but we hope they have finally learned their lesson.The voters have spoken. It’s time to listen to them and focus on policies that expand the availability, affordability, and reliability of energy, rather than on policies that makes energy more scarce, more expensive, and less reliable.”
