State, local, and tribal governments will be charged with implementing the federal legislation Democrats have passed in the last two years, including the Inflation Reduction Act. Are they ready? Do they have the administrative capacity they need? And if not, what federal help is available to help build capacity? I discuss all of this with a state policy veteran.
We are promoting the inclusion of climate education and public engagement in the programs on a state by state basis by having our local state policy people and advocates deliver directly to the regulators in the state departments and agencies, a guide we developed on where and how climate ed. can be added to the various programs. We figured the best thing we could do is to make it really easy for the folks writing the regs, who have this new added job given to them. David & Sam; extra essential conversation and information - thanks!
