Keep Virginia in RGGI!

Please reconsider Virginia's exit from RGGI. RGGI is an economically efficient way to ease Virginia's transition to clean energy, and it increases equity through its energy efficiency and flood resiliency programs. Clean energy is an issue that is already important to many Virginians and it will only become increasingly relevant as we are more and more impacted by warmer temperatures, ecological degradation, and sea level rise. Protect Virginia's energy future and help us transition to renewable energy by keeping us in RGGI.
