Stay in RGGI

Besides the apparent attempt to circumvent passed law, Governor Youngkin's desire to remove the Commonwealth of Virginia is reckless and short-sighted. It ignores science and places the Commonwealth on the wrong side of combatting adverse climate change. The Governor needs to be less influenced party and more by the long term good of his fellow Virginians. He can and must change course and do better.
