ELPC Commends Michigan Governor Whitmer for Creating Office of Future Mobility 

STATEMENT BY HOWARD A. LEARNER

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ENVIRONMENTAL LAW & POLICY CENTER

“We commend Michigan Gov. Whitmer on her steps to advance clean transportation by creating an Office of Future Mobility and Michigan Council on Future Mobility and Electrification. We expect this Council will build on Michigan’s historic transportation expertise in manufacturing and research, and more recent emphasis on electrification and planning for the necessary charging network.

“We urge the Council to advance ways of using renewable energy to charge EVs and autonomous vehicles. ELPC hopes the Council will continue Michigan’s steps to purchase more electric school buses and deploy electrified public transit beginning in 2021.”
