Repealing RGGI is bad for VA

The motivation from Gov Youngkin is purely political and does not contain sound logic. The fact is the renewable energy projects bring in jobs and tax revenue into the state and often these areas are poor rural areas of the state. His claims that this would save the average household is false and has no merit. Large renewable energy projects have already brought millions of dollars of revenue into counties such as Charles City County, Louisa, Spotsylvania,  among others. we already have the technology in the state. This is bad for business, the environment, and Virginia. 

Further more, this is a blatant endangerment of future Virginians lives.
