Urge the state to reject the no-driving mandate.
Recently, unelected bureaucrats in Denver proposed a plan to reduce emissions by creating a statewide Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP). The goal of this plan is to improve our air quality through reduced single commuter trips. However, businesses with 100 employees will be required to participate by creating a trip-reduction plan that will force workers to comply by making worker utilize alternative options: public transportation, EV use, ridesharing, walking, biking, telework, etc.) for a specific number of days each week.
To submit a public comment to the Department of Health and Environment in opposition to the ETRP, simply copy the bolded text below, then click the link at the bottom of this page and paste your comment into the submission box.
This plan is full of overburdensome regulations that create barriers to opportunity, including fines for the employers.
The Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP) has the potential to create major disruptions and hurdles just to get to work each day for Coloradans - leading to potential negative implications for the economy.
Bureaucrats should look for innovative and better alternatives by focusing on removing barriers to new and more efficient energy and transportation innovations, rather than creating more barriers.
