CCS Special Report: Climate and Economic Development Project of Southern California

In 2011, CCS began assisting the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and local government and economic partners (including the Los Angeles Economic Development Commission) with the development of goals and specific program response actions to enable the region to comply with SB 375, California’s new climate transportation law. SB 375 is the first state law to require mandated reductions in vehicle miles travelled (VMT) as a means for reducing carbon emissions, and it attracted substantial support and concern from the economic community. Key findings of the project include documentation of major economic, climate, and transportation benefits from combined transit and land use programs.
