Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain (CSCAR) operated between 1983 and 1991 to oppose tightening the Clean Air Act. In a 1986 letter sent to more than 600,000 constituents, CSCAR claimed that the acid rain bill would cost some $110 billion to industry and utilities and increase the electricity rate by 30 percent.
