State Agency Coordination to Address Climate Change

Archived: 04/29/2014

The following was superseded by Executive Order 14-04, 2014: The Washington Department of Ecology worked with the Washington Departments of Commerce and Transportation to assess whether California’s low carbon fuel standard (LCFS) or other state standards would help Washington meet its greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 1990 levels by 2020.

The Department of Transportation must work in consultation with the Departments of Ecology and Commerce and other interest groups to address low or zero emission vehicles. Additionally, the Office of the Governor will work with state agencies to seek funding to implement a project for the electrification of the West Coast interstate highway and associated metropolitan centers and to purchase electric vehicles and install public fueling and/or charging infrastructure for electric and other high-efficiency, zero, or low carbon vehicles. See the West Coast Green Highway Initiative website for additional details.
