Executive Directive 11

I strongly believe that it is time to enforce regulations to cut carbon pollution from power plants.

When President Trump, the most scientifically uninformed President in history, withdrew from the Paris Climate Accords, I did my bit by installing solar panels on the house. It's up for individuals and states to act--we have will have no help from the federal government.

The company that installed our panels is a job creator--good jobs. We can protect the environment and public health by reducing carbon emissions, and also stimulate Virginia's economy.

Please consider strong legislation to make Virginia a leader in this crucial area.
