Tell Richmond - We Can't Afford Higher Energy Prices!

If you’ve been struggling to maintain a budget over the last year because of inflation – you’re not alone.

Right now, 8 in 10 workers live paycheck-to-paycheck – especially hourly and minimum wage employees – and if the General Assembly passes their natural gas ban it will make it harder for Virginians to make ends meet!

That’s because if their electrification mandate passes, each Virginia household could have to pay more than $26,000 to switch out major appliances and other forms of home heating!

It’s time to tell the General Assembly: now is not the time to increase energy costs for our families. Support House Bill 1257.
