Read This Petition and Sign Below to Protect Virginia from Climate Flooding

Flooding poses an urgent risk to the future of Virginia. It's increasing rapidly due to the climate crisis. We want our businesses, communities, and historic landmarks protected. That is why we are calling on Governor Glenn Youngkin to keep Virginia in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). RGGI helps Virginians safeguard our communities and environment at the same time by making polluters pay for flood resilience.

For example, funding from RGGI helps to improve drainage infrastructure. Norfolk is already using these funds to prepare for future storms and Alexandria is retrofitting stormwater systems as part of the Arlandria Flood Mitigation Project. For more information, visit RGGI Grants: Community Flood Preparedness Fund.

We are signing this petition to demand that Governor Youngkin stop trying to withdraw from this vital program. Keep Virginia in RGGI!

Thank you,
