Groups Want Regional Emissions Coalition Strengthened

More than 50 New York organizations and individuals have asked Governor Cuomo to strengthen the multi-state coalition that reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, also known as RGGI, is undergoing a review that is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.  Fifty-seven groups and individuals sent a letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo asking that three core principles in RGGI be strengthened during its assessment.
Environment New York Director David VanLuven says a strong regional program is crucial.

Nine states in the Northeast and New England are members of the initiative.
