I OPPOSE Repealing CO2 Trading Program
  • No sustainable funding source has been proposed to replace the revenue from RGGI needed to address flooding. And no funds have been proposed to replace the 50% of RGGI revenue mandated to permanently reduce the energy burden on low-income households through weatherization.
  • Please do NOT repeal this program.  
  • Sincerely,
  • Patricia M Cochran
