In response the Governor Brown’s 2015 executive order on reducing emissions from the freight sector, the California Air Resources Board and several other state agencies collaborated to develop the California Sustainable Freight Action Plan, released in July 2016. The Plan outlines a wide range of strategies that, in the long term, can transform the freight system.
As part of the California Cleaner Freight Coalition, PHI's Regional Asthma Management and Prevention program (RAMP) joined partners from across the state to advocate for strong, protective health measures in the Plan. In the months ahead, RAMP intends to help shape its implementation to continue their commitment to healthy, clean air for all.
