Climate Dispatch: January 7, 2022: Rep. Becca White discusses the Transportation Innovation Act

Today’s episode

In this week’s Climate Dispatch – our first of the 2022 legislative session! – Representative Becca White joins VNRC’s Johanna Miller and VCV’s Lauren Hierl to outline the just-introduced “Transportation Innovation Act.” Rep. White provides an important, high-level frame around the vehicle electrification, high efficiency vehicle, transit, micro-mobility and other transportation innovation and equity programs in H.522. As you’ll hear, this bill is a fundamental step forward to make progress on the requirements of the Climate Action Plan and key climate priorities for the 2022 legislative session.
