RGGI provides valuable benefits to localities

RGGI is a forward-thinking program that not only put the onus on power companies to rein in emissions, but provides important home weatherization assistance and flood resilience planning capabilities to rural communities. There is no replacement for any of these programs, so existing flood-prone communities and future generations alike will suffer from this proposed rollback. Keep Virginia's role as a leader in RGGI!
