Stop The Far Left’s Attempts To Keep New Jersey In RGGI!

CLICK HERE to listen to AFP’s latest Taxpayer Minute radio ad on the far left’s attempts to keep New Jersey in RGGI!

Governor Christie made the right call when he decided to pull New Jersey out of the RGGI Cap & Trade scheme.

But now far left liberals in Trenton are on the counter-attack!

Led by Assemblyman John McKeon (D-27), Democrats in the state Legislature are going to attempt to override Governor Christie’s veto of legislation that would force New Jersey back into the failing RGGI Cap & Trade program and drive up the cost of electricity in our state.

“We plan to move for a legislative override of Gov. Christie’s veto and call on the citizens of our state to urge your representatives to vote to keep New Jersey in the regional greenhouse gas pact,” said McKeon.

You and I cannot afford skyrocketing electricity bills!
