Virginia rule to join RGGI
 

I support capping Virginia’s electricity sector CO2 emissions, and the cost savings that we get by joining a regional trading group matter.
I support the lower cap in the revised rule as many large firms are now acting to limit their emissions.
This rule is business friendly, as well as environmentally friendly.
There are substantial health benefits to all residents from lowering
emissions, in addition to the benefits of helping reduce global warming, excessive storms, devastating drought and sea-level rise.
