NJ Assembly committee meeting today on RGGI pullout

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's decision to pull out of the Regional Greenhouse
Gas Initiative

New Jersey is one of 10 states participating in the program that seeks to reduce carbon dioxide pollution in the Northeast by 10 percent by 2018. Christie's recent announcement 
was cheered by business organizations and booed by environmental groups.

Invited guests will testify at today's hearing, chaired by Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula.
