Gov. Christie Pulling NJ from Important Carbon Reducing Compact! Email DEP NOW

This week the DEP formally proposed rules that would pull New Jersey from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initative (RGGI). RGGI is compact among northeast states that reduces carbon pollution while generating funding for clean energy and energy efficiency programs. The Governor stopped our participation in the program in 2011, but in March an Appellate Court ruled he could not exit the program without altering the DEP rules.
