public listening session: The transition to electric transportation continues to accelerate
The future will be electric!
Washington State wants to hear from you about mapping and forecasting our shared transportation future.
The 2021 State Energy Strategy estimates that one million internal combustion vehicles need to be zero-emission vehicles by 2030 to meet the state’s target for reducing greenhouse gases. By 2035 all new car sales will need to be electric.
How will charging/fueling infrastructure develop and change during that time?
How can the state optimize the use of public dollars?
BUILD was present to witness the unveiling of the George Bush monument at the Capitol Campus on November 19. Though cold and overcast, dozens watched as remarks were given by members of the Washington State Historical Society, Representative Debra Entenman, and former Representative Eric Pettigrew.

A 2021 VETERANS DAY message from BUILD
Happy Veterans Day!
Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11th to honor military veterans - people who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
As proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson, Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day, originally marked the day to honor veterans. It was established after World War I to remember the “war to end all wars.” World War I, also known as the Great War, was one of the deadliest conflicts in history. During the Great War, more than 700,000 Black Americans enlisted in the military service.
