As soon as Pennsylvania’s Independent Regulatory Review Commission voted 3-2 on Wednesday to approve the state’s participation in a market-based carbon-reduction project, a House committee adopted a resolution opposing it.

The vote clears the way for Pennsylvania to join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a multi-state effort to reduce carbon emissions by setting a market price on pollution. The other members are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.
