Urge your state officials to pass an equitable bill to cut pollution and invest in Connecticut’s most disproportionately impacted communities!
For years, the Lamont administration has collaborated with states across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic through the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) to develop a regional transportation program that would cap emissions and invest in clean transportation solutions.
On December 21, 2020, Governor Lamont committed to join this program by signing a regional MOU. Then, on February 10, 2021 he released a bill, SB 884: An Act Reducing Transportation-Related Carbon Emissions, to enable Connecticut to formally adopt the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program (TCI-P).
If Connecticut implements the program, it could raise up to $89 million in the first year alone for a more just and zero emission transportation system. However, stronger equity guardrails are needed to ensure the program benefits Connecticut residents who have been hit hardest by poverty, pollution, and COVID-19.
That’s why we’re calling on key decision-makers to amend SB 884 to increase investments toward disproportionately impacted communities, address pollution disparities, incorporate fair labor standards, and support meaningful community decision-making.
Sign this petition today to advance pollution reduction, economic opportunity, and transportation access for communities who need it the most in Connecticut!
