Incentives to walk, bike, or take public transportation
As governor, I will create incentives to encourage state employees to walk, bike, or take public transportation to work. When state vehicles need to be replaced, we should purchase electric vehicles. I will also work upgrade the infrastructure of state
buildings, ensure that all new state buildings are LEED certified, and work with the legislature to expand incentive programs to replace inefficient home appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, and two-stroke engines with more efficient systems.
There is also much we can do to reduce vehicle emissions, a primary source of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. It needs to be easier for Utahns to take public transportation, but funds are lacking. I support and will advocate for initiatives that
allow counties to raise money they need to increase UTA funding to increase the frequency of common bus routes, ensure adequate parking at TRAX stops, and offer free fares on red air days.
