Don't compromise VA's air quality

We support setting the strongest possible standards for cutting Virginia emissions, including:

     • An initial cap of 30 million tons, with periodic downward adjustment.
     • Continuation of the program after 2030, unless superceded by a carbon tax.
     • No exclusion for biomass plants.
     • No exclusion for methane.***
