Today, the Michigan Council on Future Mobility and Electrification (CFME) released its 2022 report including 16 policy recommendations to maintain Michigan’s leadership in innovative mobility. These changes would help achieve goals outlined in the MI Future Mobility Plan and further secure Michigan’s spot as the global mobility and electric vehicle leader.
Clean Fuels Michigan is excited to be a part of the Council, along with leaders in the automobility industry, research universities, and state government representatives. “The policies detailed in this year’s Council report demonstrate the vast array of solutions available to unlock a cleaner, more equitable transportation system. Effective and coordinated policies are necessary to continue growing the clean fuels industries in Michigan. Capitalizing on the various opportunities available to us now – from federal funding to state policy initiatives – will cultivate good-paying jobs and keep Michigan at the forefront of innovative mobility,” said Clean Fuels Michigan Executive Director and Council member, Jane McCurry
Policies outlined in the report dovetail with Clean Fuels Michigan’s existing policy priorities. Of particular note are recommendations to:
- Invest in bus electrification and transit, totaling $55M
- Create an incentive program to help Michiganders access electric vehicles
- Design a Clean Fuel Standard that works for Michigan
There are other policies of note in the report, including fostering the clean hydrogen industry, designing accessibility standards for EV charging stations, and developing a mobility research and development talent tax credit. We look forward to working with our members, the Council, interested stakeholders, and Michigan policymakers to enact these policies that will safeguard Michigan jobs, protect air quality, and foster thriving Michigan communities.
