Urge the DOT to finalize a strong rule requiring states to reduce transportation emissions

Re: Docket No. FHWA-2021-0004

Once again, Americans across the country are feeling the effects of another hotter-than-usual summer. And that's not to mention other severe and widespread consequences of global warming like wildfires and sea level rise.

It's encouraging to see the Biden administration is taking aim at transportation pollution -- especially when we already know what's needed to reduce these emissions. States and municipalities can expand transit and make our streets safe for walking and biking. They can install electric vehicle charging and create incentives for consumers to buy electric vehicles, so that when we do need to drive, we aren't driving climate change.

I urge your agency to move quickly to finalize this proposed rule, and to make it as strong as possible to move our country toward cleaner transportation.
