Yes, above is the rogue's gallery of Virginia state legislators that sponsored the VCEA. As a result, you will now pay a large new "electricity tax" on your energy bill and VCEA will wipe out the forests in Virginia. For those that follow politics in the Commonwealth, several of those names will be familiar as the leading supporters of the extreme progressive movement and it's plan to pass a nationwide "Green New Deal", to address climate change and economic inequality. They don't like to be called socialists, but this is straight out of the playbook of government domination of the economy.
As recently stated in an article on the Green New Deal ("GND"):
"GND proponents want us to believe this can be done quickly, easily, affordably, ecologically, sustainably and painlessly – almost with the wave of a magic wand. Not a chance. Those in power would undoubtedly protect their privileged status. But the GND would control and pummel the jobs, lives, living standards, savings, personal choices and ecological heritage of rural, poor, minority, elderly and working classes.
Dependable coal and natural gas power plants will be replaced by intermittent, weather-dependent wind and solar power; gasoline-powered vehicles with electric models. That’s obvious. But our nation’s abundant coal, oil, natural gas and petroleum liquids provide over 80% of the energy that makes America’s jobs, lives and living standards possible. Locking them in the ground would have far-reaching impacts that are far less apparent, and have (deliberately?) received little media attention."
Let's not turn Virginia into California where electricity shortages are becoming the norm. Even the Wall Street Journal warns in this article, "California Blackouts a Warning for States Ramping Up Green Power"

We, the undersigned, call on the Virginia General Assembly to REPEAL the Virginia Clean Economy Act. This falsely named law will significantly harm Virginia's forests and wildlife while placing a severe "electricity tax" burden on all citizens and especially our lower and middle income consumers in the Commonwealth.
We ask that the General Assembly pass a more sensible environmental legislation that ensures no clearcutting of our forests; that will place limits on the size and amount of solar and wind facilities; that will place limits on the increase in average residential electric bill with continued oversight by the State Corporation Commission to protect the consumer; and will repeal any and all state tax credits for solar and wind facilities.
Thank you for listening to your consitituents and concerned citizens.
(The REPEAL VCEA Petition will be sent to every Member of the Virginia Senate and House of Delegates, please sign today and ask friends, neighbors and business contacts to sign so we can repeal this terrible law as soon as possible!! Thank you!!)
