From the Daily Caller:

The idea of implementing a carbon tax in lieu of EPA regulations is also being pushed on the federal level by the R Street Institute — a group pushing a tax on carbon as a “conservative” solution to federal environmental regulations.

“While a revenue-neutral carbon tax would likely help reduce emissions, that’s not the primary reason the U.S. should consider one,” Andrew Moylan, a senior fellow with R Street, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an email. “The top justifications are to allow for elimination of Obama’s expensive and heavy-handed EPA regulations and to improve economic efficiency.”
