NYS-RGGI Stakeholder Letters
September 12, 2005
New York Stakeholders:
Work on the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative has continued through the summer, with staff working group meetings as well as meetings and conference calls of the environmental and energy agency heads from the 9 participating states. Based on these continuing discussions, the Staff Working Group has developed a revised package proposal for program design. This revised proposal was transmitted to agency heads yesterday for their review.
While the agency heads are reviewing this latest revised proposal, we would also like to get your feedback on its contents. A copy of the memo and bullet-point summary transmitted to agency heads is attached to this email. Also attached is a "RGGI Recommendations at a Glance" chart that summarizes the key Staff Working Group program recommendations. If you wish to submit written comments on the attached, please forward those comments to email@example.com and place the word "Comments" in the subject line.
The next New York stakeholders meeting will take place on Monday, September 12 from 10 am to 3 pm in Room 129A on the first floor of DEC's main office at 625 Broadway in Albany. At this meeting, we will present New York-focused modeling results for the package modeling runs, recap the major components of the attached proposal, and discuss those elements. We encourage you to attend this meeting.
As you may know, the next regional stakeholders meeting will take place on September 21st in Boston. This meeting will cover the same topic areas, but it will be regional in focus.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the 12th.
