Cap and trade

In 2009, Jenkins voted for HB 103, a job-killing cap and trade bill that required 25% of West Virginia’s electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025, a bill signed by then-Gov. Joe Manchin. This bill was later criticized by state Republicans for being a cap and trade bill that would hurt West Virginia's coal industry.
