Combat climate change by requiring 100% clean energy including the transportation sector by 2040.
The Coalition believes climate change is one of the biggest threats to the Commonwealth. It supports
bills including the Virginia Clean Economy Act and the Green New Deal that aggressively move Virginia
to a clean economy and zero carbon. To get there, however, Virginia must begin with campaign finance
reform to remove the corrosive effects money has on the ability of Virginia to enact serious clean
energy legislation and ensure meaningful oversight of utilities. Bills introduced by Senator Chap
Petersen (SB 25) and Delegate Josh Cole (HB 111) do just that.
Petersen, who has introduced similar bills in the past, stated, ‘Virginians were clear in the last election
that a cleaner and greener climate must be made a reality and the only way to do that is to first pass
effective campaign finance reform. That is why, in this new Virginia majority, I will sponsor SB 25, my bill
to eliminate donations from publicly-chartered monopolies.” Cole stated, “The election this past
November ushered a new era in Virginia’s politics. I’m proud to start that new era with HB 111 which
will ensure public utility companies will be held responsible for their actions. It’s time to return power
back to the people.”
