Connecticut can curb carbon and grow its economy at the same time.
Governor Lamont signed the Transportation and Climate Initiative Memorandum of Understanding in December 2020. Connecticut joins Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and D.C. in launching the multi-state program that will help create a better environment for business. But that’s just the first step.
The Connecticut General Assembly needs to enact policy at the state level. Tell them it’s important to act quickly on the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program (TCI-P). And let Governor Lamont know TCI-P must be a priority.
TCI-P puts a price on carbon in the transportation sector and is projected to generate $84 million in proceeds for the Constitution State. This money, in turn, could create jobs and fund much-needed clean transportation infrastructure projects across Connecticut to dramatically reduce carbon emissions. That could mean EV charging, rapid bus transit, rural broadband and more. Learn more on how TCI-P is reducing transportation emissions and investing in Connecticut communities.
You don’t just have to take our word for it. TCI-P supporters include a long list of academics, environmental groups, policy leaders and more – including third party research on its potential impacts. A recent Harvard University study highlights the positive health outcomes the program could have. While a separate report from the Union of Concerned Scientists details how a program like TCI-P can help revitalize the region’s rural communities.
