Cascadia Center is co-sponsoring an important West Coast Corridor Coalition conference -- The Climate Policy and West Coast Transportation Conference -- at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., on Sept. 16-17, 2010. Federal and state policy makers will join private sector leaders to explore cross-border opportunities in exciting initiatives like the Interstate 5 Green Highway

Issues to be addressed at the conference include:

  • An overview of the economic, security and environmental reasons to move beyond oil in transportation.
  • Congressional action on climate and energy legislation and the effort to find bipartisan solutions that will benefit the economy, national security and the environment.
  • The Bipartisan Policy Center's National Transportation Policy Project report on the metrics needed to measure success in transportation policy.
