State/Local Actions & Policies
Many states and local government are setting greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals through legislation, regulation, and other policies. States and regional coalitions are developing climate action plans to identify and evaluate feasible policies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of public and private sector policies and programs. With growing interest in climate change, transportation decision makers are facing increased public emphasis on the relationship between transportation and climate change. In response, transportation agencies and planning organizations are increasingly integrating climate change impacts into transportation decision making.
