The idea of removing VA from the RGGI is just PREPOSTEROUS! Because of the RGGI, VA has been part of the fight in reducing greenhouse gasses as well as ASSISTING people who need much needed energy-efficient upgrades to their homes. There is absolutely NO LOGIC to Gov. Youngkin’s claims that removing VA from the RGGI will save Virginians money. If Gov. Youngkin plans on giving DOMINION a tax cut, then he is only pandering to Big Electric and not doing ANYTHING to save Virginians money on their electric bills. Stop undoing what Virginians have worked so hard toward. We deserve to stay in the RGGI.
