What is The Transportation Innovation Act (H.552)?

The Transportation Innovation Act (TIA) is the work of several members of the House Transportation Committee. Sixty members of the House have signed on as co-sponsors, recognizing the critical need for Vermont to take a leadership role in curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Transportation Innovation Act proposes an ambitious suite of actions, incentives, and programs to help Vermont meet the requirements of the Global Warming Solutions Act. TIA parallels the pathways laid out in the Climate Action Plan. TIA also builds on successful programs and policies already in place such as electric vehicle incentive programs, plans for the deployment of electric vehicle charging stations, and innovations in transit and mobility options. These proposals will not only help cut our carbon emissions; they will also improve air quality, enhance public health, and help reduce transportation costs for all Vermonters, especially those of low and moderate-income.
