Bad and bogus decision on RGGI

I was dismayed by the Air Pollution Control Board's "decision" to withdraw Virginia from the RGGI. This is bad news for addressing climate change and also bad rulemaking since the Board (and Governor) have no authority to repeal something mandated by law.  The State should step back this decision and not waste taxpayer money fighting a legal challenge in court.
