It is critical that Virginia remain in the RGGI. This initiative will reduce air pollution, including greenhouse gases. This pollution impacts all Virginians, but disproportionately Virginians of color and lower income Virginians. In addition, continuing to produce greenhouse gases at current rates accelerates global climate change, which impacts communities worldwide. In particular, Virginia’s coastal communities are very much at risk of flooding due to sea level rise. Please do not remove Virginia from the RGGI.
