Farmers from across Michigan are urged by a number of organizations to attend next week's Energy Citizens rally in Livonia, Mich., to oppose the House-passed climate change legislation and encourage the Senate to come up with a new plan.

The rally will take place Sept. 3. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. with a luncheon. The rally begins at 12:30 p.m. and is expected to last an hour.

The Livonia rally is one of several being held across the country by Energy Citizens, a nationwide alliance of organizations and individuals opposed to H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, most often referred to as cap-and-trade or climate change legislation. The bill, introduced by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.), passed the U.S. House of Representatives in June and is expected to be voted on in the Senate this fall.
