The Challenge

California air quality regulators and many other political leaders at the state level assert that climate change poses an immediate and growing threat to California’s economy, environment, and to public health. They observe that California’s groundbreaking efforts are helping reduce greenhouse gases emissions widely believed to be warming the planet. California lawmakers and regulators have taken aggressive steps to curtail the emission of climate change causing greenhouse gas emissions.

While this challenge may pose an opportunity for public transit, as a clean-air alternative, we must also exercise diligence in ensuring no more burdensome regulations are placed on the industry.
