The Biden administration is dialing up efforts to curb transportation sector pollution, having rolled out a new initiative aimed at requiring state-by-state greenhouse gas reduction targets for highway emissions. Last week, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) rolled out a landmark proposal to require US states to set targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from highway traffic and establish a tracking system. The plan, similar to one contemplated during the Obama administration but never put into effect, would add a new, mandatory rung to state climate planning, although how states will implement and enforce the mandate is not yet clear.
