DATELINE: NEW YORK, NY – An Americans for Prosperity New York activist today filed suit challenging New York State’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) Cap & Trade program.

Buffalo-area activist Lisa Thrun, lead plaintiff in the lawsuit and volunteer grassroots chair for Americans for Prosperity’s New York chapter, explained the impetus for filing the lawsuit.

“I’m here today because as a ratepayer, as a taxpayer I was not represented and neither were the taxpayers of New York State.”
