Executive Directive 11
 

I'm writing today to voice my support of a regulation in Virginia that cuts carbon pollution from power plants and allows us to trade carbon allowances with other states.

With no help coming from the federal level in addressing climate change, it’s up to states like Virginia to act. By cutting carbon emissions in Virginia, we have the opportunity to protect public health and safety while also creating jobs in the carbon-neutral renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors.

And because we’re joining up with a coalition of other states with carbon caps, action we take here in Virginia is greater than the sum of its parts.

Please proceed with a strong regulation that shows Virginia is a leader in addressing climate change and takes its responsibility seriously.

Thank you for your service and please continue fighting for our environment and future generations.
