STOP & DELAY THE VMT

Starting July 1st, California will officially enforce new regulations on a new statewide plan that poses a serious threat to the health and welfare of residents across the state.

Known as Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), this deeply flawed plan uses a “New York State of Mind” approach to future development encouraging high-density planning. In addition to this approach, the VMT program has several flaws that would:

  • Ignore the current health pandemic
  • Put more people on buses or trains
  • Count car trips for a future new car tax
  • Approve costly high-rise housing in neighborhoods
  • Fail to recognize employee rights to telecommute
  • Fail to include pandemic planning or a social distancing program
  • Increase housing and rent costs

By ignoring the critical role that social distancing has played in slowing the spread of the Coronavirus, this outdated plan does not protect our aging population from future virus pandemics.

Although the government at all levels has moved or delayed reporting and regulatory deadlines of all types, Governor Newsom has decided to move forward on this unrealistic plan.

We need you to let your elected representatives know that this plan needs to be delayed in order to address the numerous problems associated with the VMT program: http://opr.ca.gov/ceqa/updates/sb-743/
