With the election ending, I hope that our leaders can get back to focusing on the issues and getting our problems solved.

There are many important issues, but one that has been on the back burner for far too long is a long-term energy policy. I recently read that the EPA would like to change ozone level standards, lowering the level of parts per billion from the current 75 to 60. Sounds good in theory, but it would probably cost businesses billions per year for what would amount to little to no benefit. As a small business owner for 15 years, this scares me.

I hope that in the coming months, we can all come together to create a smart energy policy that helps business AND the environment.
