As northeastern states extend the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) from 2020 to 2030, Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will help make decisions regarding regional levels of carbon pollution. Write to urge the DEP to keep us on track to lower carbon emissions from power plants while lowering energy costs.
Tell President Trump to Stop Rollbacks on Climate Protection
