Reduce and Cap Carbon Dioxide from Fossil Fuel Fired Electric Power Generating Facilities (Rev. C17)
 

It's time for Virginia to cap carbon emissions on all fossil fuel burning power plants operating in our state.

Let's set the base budget at 33 million tons, not 34 million tons; provide reasonable accomodation for facilities that produce power for their own consumption; keep DEQ out of the carbon allowance auction business; and produce  timely good faith estimates of costs, benefits and impacts on farmers and small businesses but let's not use this as an excuse for delays.
