LOCAL 251 JOINS STATE OF RHODE ISLAND MOBILITY AND INNOVATION WORKING GROUP
Teamsters Local 251 Secretary-Treasurer Matt Taibi was named to Rhode Island’s “Mobility and Innovation Working Group.”
The group was created from stakeholders in the transportation industry to inform the design of a statewide mobility strategy that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and simultaneously promote accessible and affordable transportation options for all Rhode Islanders, especially those in overburdened and underserved communities.
The transportation sector is responsible for approximately 40% of Rhode Island’s greenhouse gas emissions. The mobility strategy will build on the comprehensive portfolio of clean transportation policies, regulations and initiatives that have already been implemented statewide. By January of 2021, the Working Group will provide Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo with a final report, which will include recommended initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maximize clean mobility options for all Rhode Islanders.
