Washington, D.C. - Today Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the Senate's rejection of the Green New Deal Resolution:

"The Green New Deal would cost up to $93 trillion, or about $600,000 for every family in Arkansas. From raising energy costs, to destroying jobs, to wiping out entire industries, a government-mandated green economy would be a disaster for the middle class. This isn't a solution, it's a socialist wish list and thinly disguised fundraising email. The Senate was right to vote down this foolish proposal. "
