PA House Environmental Resources and Energy (ERE) Committee Majority Chairman Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) will once again convene a public hearing to receive expert, factual testimony on the consequences of Pennsylvania joining any cap-and-trade, carbon tax-imposing emissions program such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
The hearing will feature presentations from Vince Brisini, Olympus Power, LLC; Retired Air Pollution Meteorologist Roger Caiazza; Walter Schroth, Schroth Industries Inc. and member of Pennsylvania Small Business Compliance Advisory Committee; and Caleb Stewart Rossiter, Ph.D., C02 Coalition.
Participation in RGGI could eliminate more than 30% of the state’s current energy generation capacity, kill thousands of family-sustaining energy jobs, undermine Pennsylvania’s status as a leading natural gas producer and energy exporter, and guarantee skyrocketing electricity rates for everyone through excessive carbon taxes and overregulation.
Monday, Aug. 24, 10 a.m.
Room 140 Main Capitol Building, State Capitol Complex, Harrisburg
Barring technical difficulties, Monday’s hearing will be streamed live on RepMetcalfe.com
