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 Michelle Bloodworth, president and CEO, America’s Power; Anthony Holtzman, Esq., K&L Gates LLP; Ashley Klingensmith, Americans for Prosperity – PA; and Shawn Steffee, Boilermakers Local 154.

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.

WHEN: Tuesday, July 21, 1 p.m.

WHERE: Room 140 Main Capitol Building, State Capitol Complex, Harrisburg.

LIVESTREAM: Barring technical difficulties, Tuesday’s hearing will be streamed live on RepMetcalfe.com.
