Support for Emissions Cap
 

I strongly support this proposal. Virginians are already suffering the consequences of climate change, especially on the Eastern seaboard as sea levels rise. We must hold Virginia responsible and implement a cap and trade program to stop the snowballing problem. Mitigating fossil fuel use by incentivizing cleaner energy is a proven success in other states and we should follow in their footsteps.
