WHEREAS, (1) our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be controlled, because stabilizing our climate is critical to our future; (2) 39% of California's GHG emissions are caused by transportation and; (3) in order to reach our state's science-based goal of reducing GHG emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050, significant transportation policy changes will be required; and
WHEREAS, (1) the cost of transportation is significant to families, communities, companies, our state, and our nation; (2) many transportation facilities are provided by government; (3) highway congestion and fuel-price fluctuations are a frequent source of harm; and (4) highway maintenance and many transit services are threatened by our state's budget problems; and WHEREAS, (1) many citizens realize that government transportation policies need reconsideration; and (2) our current CDP platform has planks on a wide range of subjects but only a few of them are as impactful to the general population as transportation;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the San Diego County Democratic Party Central Committee declares its support for the creation of a transportation plank for the 2012 California Democratic Party (CDP) platform, one that would describe the top-level changes needed to achieve a more equitable, efficient, and environmentally-sound set of transportation policies;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution be sent to the CDP's Platform Committee and to party and state officials, including our Party Chair, our Governor, our Lieutenant Governor; the President Pro Tempore of the California Senate; the Speaker of the California Assembly; the California State Attorney General; and the Chair of the California Air Resources Board.
