Comments will be accepted through January 14, 2021.
The EQB will also host 10 virtual public hearings beginning December 8 through December 14, 2020. All comments received whether written or in spoken testimony are given equal weight.
To Comment abut RGGI You need to go to eComment first: https://www.ahs.dep.pa.gov/eComment/
Then in the left hand column, look for "Proposed Rulemaking: CO2 Budget Trading Program (#7-559)" -- that link in the left column goes to directly to the document to read. Then across, over in the far right column, you'll see a link that says "Submit comments." There's also one that lets you view other people's comments.
For more information, including how to register to present testimony at a hearing, please see the EQB webpage.
