Yesterday the Pennsylvania Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee held a virtual hearing on Gov. Wolf’s plan to bypass the state legislature and force the state to join the so-called Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a group of northeastern states attempting to assassinate coal and gas-fired power generation by taxing it to death with an insane carbon tax (see Gov. Wolf Goes Bonkers: EO Destroying Gas-Fired Elec, Carbon Tax). Committee Chairman Sen. Gene Yaw (Republican) slammed RGGI in his opening/closing remarks. So too did a number of business leaders who addressed the hearing, telling Senators RGGI will be an economic disaster for the state.
