As the administration turns away from acting on climate change, state and local governments are picking up the torch and making clean air and energy efficiency commitments. Join Route Fifty as we explore how state and local governments are setting their own climate goals--and making changes locally, regionally, and internationally to achieve them. From the future of vehicle emissions to regional partnerships, we'll delve into the policy issues at play--and the stakes. The event covered the following topics:
- States rights in setting emission standards
- State and local governments' work to set their own climate goals--and work internationally
- Regional cap & trade agreements between states
- Health equity - emissions impact on the least able citizens
