Stop Burdensome Regulations

Governor Northam,

   Stop enacting burdensome regulations which may force the Chesterfield Power Station to close.  Virginia offers some of the most affordable utility rates in the Nation and it is a potential selling point for bringing new companies to the Commonwealth and one of the few advantages to living in Virginia.

   These power plants provide jobs and and massive economic benefits to Virginia’s economy.

   Governor Northam, do NOT put your political patrons BEFORE the citizens of Virginia.  Your ill-advised regulations on Virginia will kill jobs, wages, and local economies!
