Oppose the RGGI Rule as Written
 

I oppose the rule as written, because it would include emissions from non-fossil fuel sources such as biomass, which plays a critical role in Virginia’s forestry economy.  The rule should be amended to specifically exclude emissions from sources such as biomass, which are widely acknowledged and known to be carbon neutral.

Thank you.
