Virginia should stay in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative

The RGGI is crucial to our fight against climate change, which is affecting Virginia right now. Staying in the RGGI is essential for helping those affected by energy burdens and severe flooding and ensures that the state is able to continue to work toward reducing carbon emissions. Gov. Youngkin does not have the authority to remove Virginia from this important climate initiative and should not take this action.
