GLRPPR Sector Resource: Getting Back on Track: Aligning State Transportation Policy with Climate Change Goals

Title:
Getting Back on Track: Aligning State Transportation Policy with Climate Change Goals

Abstract:
State transportation policy has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also effectively meeting the nation's wide-ranging mobility needs. Few studies have specifically sought to evaluate how states' transportation policies impact greenhouse gas emissions. In this document, the authors evaluate how well state-level transportation decisions are aligned with efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by examining a selection of key transportation policies currently in place in the 50 states. The findings suggest that there is tremendous potential to make progress on reducing transportation-related carbon emissions. The recommendations in this report suggest ways states can improve their climate performance while meeting their mobility needs.
