Executive regulatory action cannot overturn legislation - STAY in RGGI

As the subject states, this is simply illegal. I urge you to please reverse course and leave this issue to the legislature where their action on it is legal. No executive action can overturn legislation. That is textbook executive overreach and is clearly an effort to upend a well functioning system as long as the legal process can drag out. For all substantial and merrited comments arguing for reform of the regulations that should be handeled with a TAC and/or legislative solutions. The current action is undemocratic in all senses of checks and balances and the administration knows that. Again, please reverse course and abandon this effort. Thank you,
