Last month, we asked our NJ Conservation Action Network members to contact their legislators and tell NJ Governor Christie to stop trying to pull the state out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
The good news is that your calls and emails paid off!
The NJ Assembly’s Environment Committee advanced a bill (A1998) that would continue the state’s participation in this successful pollution reduction program. RGGI is a groundbreaking and effective 10-state program designed to reduce carbon air pollution from power plants in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. It has generated more than $778 million for state investments in clean energy projects throughout the region.
