Yaw: Commonwealth Court Right to Pause Wolf’s Unconstitutional Carbon Tax

HARRISBURG – Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) released the following statement after the Commonwealth Court granted a preliminary injunction today that delays Pennsylvania’s entry into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) pending further court action:

“The court made the right choice today in pausing implementation of RGGI and I am optimistic that we will succeed on the merits of the case. 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.”
