Misguided or misleading?

It's a bit of a stretch to pitch this as saving money for Virginia's households. The Executive Order states that "typical residential customer bills were increased by $2.39 a month". Two sausage biscuits at Bojangles cost $2.49 plus tax. There are bound to be more impactful changes we could make to peoples lives than this "anti-green" decree, like a cap on the amount real estate taxes are allowed to go up in one year, for example.
