On March 15th, citizens, civic, faith and environmental advocates will be coming to the State Capitol to meet with local representatives and talk to them in the hallways of the New Jersey State House. We will be urging them to oppose the Governor’s decision to take New Jersey out of the RGGI program and his repeated cuts to funding for the Clean Energy Program – programs we need to solve critical problems like air pollution and global warming.
Later that day the Assembly will vote on the “No Clean Air Rollback” bill, which would block Gov. Christie from abandoning the historic Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. That’s why it’s imperative that we bring at least 200 “citizen lobbyists” to send the strongest message possible.
Meet at 11:15am the Historic Trenton Masonic Temple, 100 Barrack Street in Trenton for briefings and then head over to the Trenton State House.
