I am opposed to this repeal. Virginia should maintain its participation in RGGI for the well-being of all Virginians. Data shows that the RGGI is effective in decreasing power plant emissions and improving public health. We deserve to live in a place that keeps us healthy. Also, natural disasters are happening with increased frequency. RGGI provides funding to plan for and prevent flooding. This is essential if we want to save money and avoid flooding damage, and it can also save lives.
I urge you to think about the needs of your constituents and maintain Virginia's participation in RGGI.
