Keep RGGI in Virginia

RGGI is needed for all Virginians so it definitely needs to continue.

  • Flood damage is increasing across the Commonwealth: RGGI Revenue addresses flooding.

    Withdrawing from RGGI would be a huge step backward for Virginia. 

    Only the General Assembly can repeal a law, it is not within the power of a governor or a state board.
  • RGGI is an essential part of Virginia’s clean energy future.  

Please do not leave this beneficial program. All Virginians will benefit by staying in RGGI.
