RGGI is Law

I am a lifelong Virginian, a father of two, a teacher, and a voter. 


The purpose of laws like RGGI is to create pragmatic economic incentives to reduce emissions. If we break these laws, we disrespect future generations who are counting on us to take meaningful action to preserve a habitable world. 

RGGI is LAW. Respect the law. Respect our planet.
