Pa. missing out on millions as RGGI battle trudges on - Pennsylvania Capital-Star
“It’s disappointing that attempts to delay RGGI are resulting in Pennsylvania missing out on significant economic benefits, not to mention crucial time to cut our carbon emissions. Unfortunately, delays to RGGI are also significantly limiting our response to the growing impacts of climate change... I remain optimistic that RGGI will clear these obstacles... We need to pass the RGGI Investments Act so Pennsylvania is prepared to make effective investments in the clean energy economy, environmental justice communities, and support for workers and communities impacted by the transition from fossil fuels.”
- Senator Carolyn Comitta
Pennsylvania is missing out on millions of dollars in revenue from carbon-allowance auctions that are part of a multi-state initiative to combat climate change as legal challenges to the commonwealth’s involvement in the initiative continue.
