Opposed to Gov. Youngkin's effort to remove Virginia from the RGGI

Virginia needs to maintain its participation in RGGI and Gov. Youngkin's effort to remove us is is illegal as a 2020 law mandates that Virginia participate in RGGI. The administration can’t just ignore the laws it disagrees with. 

We need this! RGGI reduces emissions!! The Youngkin admin ADMITTED AS MUCH in a recent report, concluding that RGGI “has a long track record of emission reductions since the beginning of the program.”
