RGGI is Virginia Law and Smart Fiscal and Carbon Reduction Policy

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative has already generated $378 million for Virginia to invest in low-income energy efficiency programs and flood infrastructure in Virginia. Discontinuing Virginia's participation is a terrible fiscal management strategy and demonstrates a lack of commitment to combat the causes of climate change. We must reduce carbon output from the energy sector now. RGGI is the law in this state, and the governor has no authority to remove us unilaterally.
