?Congratulations to the Atlantic County Freeholders for being the latest elected officials to take a stand against RGGI (the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative).?? A special mention to Freeholder Joe McDevitt for sponsoring the resolution and to Freeholders Frank Formica (Chairman), Frank Giordano, Frank Sutton, Jim Bertino, and Rich Dase for voting in favor of the repeal RGGI resolution.? An additional thank you to everyone who came to the Freeholder meeting to support the RGGI repeal resolution, especially to all of our L and P members in attendence and to Absecon City Councilman Chuck Urban, who has also been outspoken on this issue and even led the efforts to adopting a repeal.
New Jersey is one step closer to withdrawing from RGGI.?? Senator Jim Whelan is the only state legislator – Republican or Democrat – in the Atlantic City area still supporting this job-killing energy tax.?? You are welcome to call or e-mail Senator Whelan today to express your opinion on repealing RGGI:
