Three workshops will explore transportation pollution solutions

Emissions from the transportation sector, an area where policymakers are putting more focus, will be the subject of three "community workshops" this month in Worcester, Pittsfield and Lawrence.

The Baker administration on July 2 announced its plans, saying there will also be an additional three workshops in the future as the state works with nine other states on a novel approach to low-carbon transportation policies.

Gov. Charlie Baker in December enlisted Massachusetts in the Transportation and Climate Initiative, which is pursuing a plan similar to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative that has reduced power sector emissions. Officials are building a framework for a program to cap and reduce transportation emissions and invest in a cleaner transportation system.

Stakeholder groups Our Transportation Future and MA TCI Table plan to join officials from the state energy, environment, and transportation agencies at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 18 at Clark University, 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 23 at the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, and 6 p.m. Thursday, July 25 in the Sargent Auditorium of Lawrence Library.

In addition to the District of Columbia, the participating states are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.
