    This bill is why we limit our legislature of amateurs to 60 days. Too much free sugar foods bring up ill-conceived ideas.

    I object to covertly raising money from consumers to fund private, not even specifically identified, entities in their quixotic quests.

    I object to the concept of hiding this “tax” to take people’s money to give to private groups with not clear plan, and then holding money for some vague concept of subsidizing goals with no specific goals or accountability.

    Why hit natural gas consumers? I thought the use of natural gas was the goal. Why not ask for donations from automobile owners? Place a button on the gas pump to add a dollar to your fill-up. Hire the legion of panhandlers who park on freeway exits to solicit for the fund at stop lights. Maybe we could ask for donations from every house with a chimney.

    In my not so humble opinion, Senator Adam’s constituents need to do some serious reflection on his performance come re-election.

    If opting out is so easy, why isn't set up so people opt in?
