Support the lower cap on carbon in the revised rule!

I urge you to support the idea of capping Virginia’s electricity sector CO2 emissions for several reasons. Virginia will incur cost savings by joining a regional trading group.  Also, many large firms are now acting to limit their emissions, this rule is business friendly, as well as environmentally friendly. And most importantly, there are substantial health benefits to all residents from lowering emissions, in addition to the benefits of helping reduce global warming and sea level rise.

Let Virginia be a leader and support the lower cap on carbon!
