Letter to Gov. Baker from Business and Environmental Leaders

We are a diverse group of organizations with business constituencies, united by the once-in-a generation opportunity to modernize and decarbonize our transportation system. We are writing to you for two reasons. First, we strongly support the work of the Commission on the Future of Transportation and we would like to see its recommendations fully implemented. We stand in service to help you refine and advance those concepts. Second, we strongly support the Transportation & Climate Initiative (TCI). We believe that, if properly structured, the policy created through TCI can achieve several of our shared goals concurrently: mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from transportation; invest in much-needed public transit; alleviate congestion; and generate a revenue stream to fund these and future transportation improvements.
