Governor.-elect Glenn Youngkin announces he will pull Virginia out of Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (Virginia Scope)

“Given the fact that Democrats control the Virginia Senate, Youngkin is likely to use executive action wherever possible to address topics that are controversial,” said Dr. Stephen Farnsworth, a political science professor and director in the Center for Leadership and Media Studies at the University of Mary Washington. “It would be a great challenge for him to get bipartisan buy-in on this policy initiative and that is why executive action is something that we are likely to see from Youngkin on this and other climate change issues.”
