I want to hear from you!

Recently, the Governor signed an executive order mandating that Pennsylvania join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (also known as RGGI). 

Those that support the Governor’s executive order say that this will be an important step in fighting climate change. Scientists claim that climate change is responsible for rising global temperatures and an increase in hurricanes and floods. Joining RGGI would also give Pennsylvania the opportunity to further expand on other forms of energy such as renewables. 

Those who don’t support the Governor say it will dramatically increase electric bills for everyone.  Joining RGGI would bankrupt the state’s coal refuse industry which is responsible for cleaning up massive waste coal piles and strip mines that pollute our environment. The order will lead to court challenges because the General Assembly, not the Governor, has taxing authority.  

Do you believe that the Governor was right with his move to mandate that Pennsylvania join RGGI by executive order, without the support of the House of Representatives or the Senate?
