stay in RGGI

Virginia needs to continue to be part of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. It is helping Virginians right now, with lower energy bills and healthier air to breathe. Healthier air means fewer asthma attacks & fewer missed school days for kids - which also means fewer missed work days for adults! Additionally, we are in a climate crisis that requires all states to lower emissions for a carbon-neutral future. Stayin RGGI. Leaving it is a gigantic step backward for Virginia.
