Governor Kaines's  Commission on Climate Change

Governor Timothy M. Kaine established the Governor's Commission on Climate Change in December 2007. The commission will prepare a plan for Virginia that identifies ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. During the development of the plan, the commission will take the following steps:

The Virginia Energy Plan, released in September 2007, set a goal for the Commonwealth to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2025. The reduction in emissions will be partially achieved through energy conservation and renewable energy actions listed in the energy plan.

The Governor's Commission on Climate Change will identify additional steps that need to be taken to achieve the emissions reduction goal in a report scheduled to be issued by Dec.15, 2008.
