TRENTON, N.J., June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Military veterans of Operation Free will co-host a roundtable in the State Capitol Building to discuss the critical connection between clean energy and our economic and national security. In anticipation of Gov. Christie’s release of his Energy Action Plan sometime next week, military veterans already are ready to call the plan a “failure” if he reneges the state’s commitment to RGGI, the region’s clean efficient energy program.
