Virginia's membership in the RGGI clearly reflects a commitment to a sustainable future. To withdraw would be to look backward rather than forward and as such would be a huge mistake. And withdrawal by the means apparently being considered by Gov. Youngkin would be unethical at best and probably illegal. Virginia should remain in the RGGI.
