Yaw: Commonwealth Court Action on Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) “is a Step in the Right Direction”

Harrisburg — Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) released the following statement after the Commonwealth Court delayed final publication of a regulatory rulemaking that would enter Pennsylvania into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative:

“The court’s action is a welcome step in the right direction,” Yaw said. “It’s prudent to press pause on RGGI, given the administration’s gross underestimations of how much it will inflate electricity costs for all Pennsylvanians. We need to pursue climate solutions that encourage collaboration with our energy sector, not regressive and unconstitutional taxes meant to destroy it and leave us reliant on foreign oil and gas for decades to come. I look forward to further court action on this matter and continuing our fight to protect Pennsylvania’s economic prosperity.”
