RGGI is consistent with strong and sustainable economic growth

Remaining in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a flexible and proven cap-and-invest program, allows member states to reduce carbon emissions and is a simple, cost-effective way to do so.  We can achieve significant emission reductions through RGGI while creating value in myriad ways by driving investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency, including targeted efficiency for low-income consumers. 

Governor Trumpkin only cares about pleasing the coal lobbyists and will subvert the will of the overwhelming majority of his constituents to do so.

Worst governor ever!! He is not a governing for the people!
