"REJOINING RGGI IS A BIG STEP FOR NEW JERSEY TO BECOME A NATIONAL LEADER IN ENERGY POLICY, AND SHOWS STATE LEADERS ARE SERIOUS ABOUT INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE"
Trenton, NJ - Matt Fossen, spokesperson for the NJ Coalition for Fair Energy, released the following statement today after A. 1212 - a bill which requires New Jersey to rejoin the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and mandates the proceeds from the program go toward fighting climate change - passed through the State Assembly:
“Today’s passage is a major accomplishment for legislators, and advances Governor Murphy’s forward-thinking energy agenda. Rejoining RGGI is a big step for New Jersey to become a national leader in energy policy, and shows state leaders are serious about investing in our future - rather than complacently spending money on the past.”
