How far will Democrats go to join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative?

Democrats in the swing states of Pennsylvania and Virginia are weighing
how much political capital they are willing to spend so their states

program that’s been politically controversial since its inception.
POLITICO’s Jordan Wolman breaks down the tricky politics in those states

nations last year according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation
and Development.
