Northeast Governors Launch Gun Safety Coalition

Feb 24, 2018

The governors of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island have announced plans to create a regional task force, called “States for Gun Safety,” in order to combat gun violence.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which caps power plant carbon emissions in participating states, is expected to expand to New Jersey and Virginia. 


Northern New Jersey is one of the highest-taxed places in the country. So a tax cut sounds great to a lot of people there. But the House Republican plan being debated this week may actually raise the taxes of many people in the region.

New Jersey's Governor-elect Phil Murphy has vowed to "immediately" bring his state back into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, or RGGI. It’s a move that could strengthen the pollution-fighting partnership.
