Harrisburg, October 3, 2019:  State Senator John Yudichak (D – Luzerne/Carbon) released this statement regarding Governor Tom Wolf’s Executive Order on the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI):

“I applaud Governor Wolf for initiating the important conversation about Pennsylvania’s entry into RGGI which will put Pennsylvania at the forefront of addressing climate change. Climate change is a real, priority level one threat to our environment that deserves the full attention of the legislature that this executive action will require. As DEP begins their outreach, it will be vitally important for them to have an open dialogue with the legislature and I look forward to participating in discussions to effectively and swiftly deal with climate change.”
