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?
This is a repost from the governor's Medium page.
Gov. Jay Inslee signed a dozen bills today that will improve accountability for law enforcement in Washington state, and will create the nation’s strongest police accountability system. The governor, joined by community members and families of those impacted, signed the bills at the Eastside Community Center in Tacoma.
The governor signed legislation that will create an Office of Independent Investigations that reports to the governor, prohibit certain uses of force and will require more thorough oversight requirements for hiring and for reporting misconduct.
“The crises of the past year have unmasked long-standing inequities in our society. The consciousness of our state and nation has been raised against inequity in many forms,” Inslee said. “Our moral mandate to acknowledge these hard truths crystallized in the fallout from the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota, and the killing of Manny Ellis in Tacoma. The bills I am signing today respect these truths and lay a solid foundation to halt inequity’s pernicious influence in our systems of government.”
