Assembly Environment Chair Pinkin Agrees with Gov, New Jersey Should Return to RGGI

“New Jersey’s future impact on environmental concerns, global warming, and pollution depends on our participation in regional programs such as RGGI. Most environmental efforts in the last eight years were hindered and, as a result, New Jersey has fallen behind on other states on its efforts to reduce carbon emissions. We’ve lost over $250 million in revenue and a great opportunity keep the state moving toward a cleaner future.

“I agree with the Governor. It’s time to begin the process of returning to the regional pact and working with neighboring states again to reduce carbon emissions together. The Assembly Environment Committee looks forward to working with all stakeholders involved.”
