HARRISBURG, P.A. – Governor Tom Wolf today unveiled his proposed 2020-21 fiscal year budget agenda, laying out key priorities for Pennsylvania and doubling down on his commitment to joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
A statement follows from Mark Szybist, Senior Attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC):
“Governor Wolf mapped out a strong vision to better the lives of all Pennsylvanians, including a firm commitment to joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Not only would this curb harmful climate pollution – it would also help clean up the air our children breathe, enable Pennsylvania to invest in a transportation system that works for everyone, and create family-sustaining jobs and a more equitable society. The Governor now has to take this blueprint and make it a reality.”
