About the TCI Regional Low-Carbon Transportation Policy Development Process

TCI is a collaboration of state environmental, energy, and transportation agencies that are working together to develop a regional policy for low-carbon transportation, following the December 18, 2018 statement by nine states and Washington D.C. committing to:

­“…design a regional low-carbon transportation policy proposal that would cap and reduce carbon emissions from the combustion of transportation fuels through a cap-and-invest program or other pricing mechanism… [and]… to complete the policy development process within one year, after which each jurisdiction will decide whether to adopt and implement the policy.”

This TCI event is the first in a series of workshops in 2019 that are being facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center, on behalf of participating TCI states. These events will serve as important opportunities for TCI jurisdictions to consult with experts, businesses, residents, communities, and other stakeholders who may inform a regional low-carbon transportation policy. In-person workshops will also provide key opportunities for stakeholders to provide input and engage with the program development process. Learn more about this process on the TCI website.
