Pennsylvania is a member of the Transportation and Climate Initiative, and have joined a select group of TCI states to cap transportation emissions and trade emission permits in a system modeled after RGGI.

Pennsylvania’s Environmental Quality Board (regulatory board) has been petitioned by over 50 groups to adopt a proposed regulation establishing an economy-wide auction-cap-and-trade program for Pennsylvania. The program would be modeled after California’s program because both are petroleum exporting states. The petition was led by the Clean Air Council of Philadelphia.
