In support of lowering the CO2 cap
 

I am writing in support the idea of capping Virginia’s electricity sector CO2 emissions and in support of the lower cap in the revised rule.  In addition to protecting the environment, substantial health benefits for all residents will result from lowering emissions.  Also, because many large firms are now acting to limit their emissions, this rule is business friendly and our joining a regional trade group will result in a cost savings.  Finally, these lower emissions with help with the urgent necessity of reducing global climate change and sea-level rise.
