Keep Virginia in RGGI!

This year has made it clear that the effects of climate change are accelerating. As a coastal state, Virginia is at severe risk for flooding, and without the RGGI funds, we will not have the resources to protect our citizens from devastation caused by flood waters. Cap-and-trade programs work. Sticking our heads in the sand will not. Keep Virginia in RGGI.
