Virginia Needs RGGI

We will hinder Virginia's progress toward a clean economy by repealing Virginia's participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). Virginia's participation in RGGI is a successful effort to reduce pollution while directly helping communities on the front lines. RGGI is already helping thousands of low-wealth families reduce energy bills and climate impacts. It also helps localities across the state to deal with increasingly devastating floods. As a person of conscience, it is essential to support initiatives like RGGI that help us achieve our goal to address the impacts of climate change and reach carbon-free energy by 2050. Thank you!
