Support the Emissions Cap
 

I write in favor of Virginia’s proposed regulation for capping CO2 emissions. I support this cap, which will hold Virginia accountable to the global community. Capping 2020 emissions from electric power plants that burn fossil
fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil will help to protect the rights of Virginians to clean air and quality soil. It is important to note that this will not significantly impact electricity rates. The great state of Virginia joining with 9 other states in their commitment to limit power plant emissions is a noble cause that will protect the independence, health, and happiness of both local and global citizens.
