Yaw Applauds Commonwealth Court Decision on RGGI

HARRISBURG – Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) issued the following statement after the Commonwealth Court found that Pennsylvania’s entrance into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) may only be achieved through legislation duly enacted by the General Assembly. 

“Every other participating state entered RGGI through the legislative process- not executive action and a bipartisan majority of Pennsylvania legislators have consistently voted against RGGI when the issue has been brought to the floor,” Sen. Yaw said.  I appreciate the Commonwealth Court’s rejection of this unconstitutional maneuver.”
