August 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
You’re invited to a TAEBC Zoom webinar featuring Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) to discuss the status of a $150 billion federal stimulus proposal to strengthen our nation’s transportation infrastructure and what it could mean for Tennessee. RSVP HERE!
Featured Speakers include:
- Michael Swords, VP of Government Affairs & International Relations, LACI
- Michelle Kinman, Director of Transportation, LACI
- Cortney Piper, Executive Director, TAEBC
There will be a 15 minute presentation by the organizers followed by Q&A from the audience.
TAEBC signed on to this proposal in July as we can again look to the advanced energy sector for economic recovery. This presentation will cover what this investment could mean for Tennessee as state leaders eye Tennessee becoming the top spot for the country’s EV supply chain and implement statewide electrification plans.
Zoom links and dial-in information will be shared at a later date.
This national coalition represents leaders from multiple states and DC requesting zero emissions vehicle manufacturing and innovation, infrastructure deployment, public and active transit, job training, high-quality workforce standards, and support for related startups and small business, prioritizing those started by underrepresented founders.
New findings show this proposal could create up to 2.3 million jobs across the U.S. boosting employment in all sectors, with 1.4 million jobs expected to build out our nation’s zero emissions transportation infrastructure alone.
