S. 3729: Banning emission taxes on livestock

A followup to Sunday’s post on Pigovian emission taxes on cows… A bill proposed to ban taxes on livestock flatulence. Fulltext unavailable, so here’s the summary:

A bill to amend the Clean Air Act to prohibit the imposition of a fee or tax for direct gaseous emissions by livestock.

The bill is sponsored by Byron Dorgan, a Democratic Senator from North Dakota. The bill isn’t terribly surprising given that North Dakota’s largest industry is agriculture.
