Remain a member state under RGGI

The City of Fairfax Environment and Sustainability Division urges the Administration to remain a member-state of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). This initiative is a critical cooperative agreement between states that reduces greenhouse gas emissions across the north-and southeast, promoting public health and climate resiliency for Virginia residents and businesses alike. Partaking in this market-based program provides direct costs-savings and benefits to addressing energy efficiency for Virginia’s vulnerable populations.
