Pennsylvania to take Action on Global Warming?

According to PennFuture, Pennsylvania House Bill 500 - the "Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act" - has been gaining political momentum in Harrisburg recently. The global warming bill, sponsored by Rep. Greg Vitali (D-Delaware), has bipartisan support with 10 Republicans and 43 Democrats as co-sponsors.

The legislation would require Pennsylvania to:

- Conduct a statewide inventory of greenhouse gas emissions;
- Create a stakeholder group to advise the state on global warming issues;
- Develop and publish a global warming statement for Pennsylvania that includes an analysis of economic opportunities for the Commonwealth; and
- Develop an action plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the state.

I am pleased to be a supporter of this excellent piece of legislation. Greg Vitali deserves tremendous credit for taking the time to get both the legislation and the supporting legislators together. He is on the cutting edge of a major national and international problem.
