Regulation for Emissions Trading [9 VAC 5 ? 140]
 

I am in favor of implementing state-wide policies that provide for a cap on carbon emissions.  I would prefer an economy-wide cap, but I am happy to support a cap for the electricity sector as a first step. Limiting carbon emissions sends a signal that we are serious about combatting climate change and serious about being part of the clean energy economy. Virginia must not be left behind. This is a great opportunity to do the right thing for present and future generations, both here in the commonwealth and across the world.
