Participating in the RGGI benefits Virginia's environment and our economy.
For instance, participating in this initiative has already resulted in $523 million for flood resilience and energy efficiency programs since January 2021. That's a job creator.
I live in Hampton Roads, VA, and our community knows we need to build resilience to an ever-increasing rise in sea levels that is already adversely impacting our region's infrastructure and economy.
Virginia can be a leader in an economy that is sustainable for the 21st century, so let's not pull out of this very successful initiative. Stay in the RGGI.
