"Bren Working Group on Vehicle Fuel Efficiency:

Students in the Policy Arena"

Sponsored by Charles Kolstad



During the fall quarter of 2009, a group of Bren students collaborated as the Bren Working Group on Vehicle Fuel Economy to prepare and present testimony on the Obama Administration’s proposed CAFE standards. A panel of students will speak about the process of commenting on a federal rulemaking, the public hearing at which they provided testimony, and the findings of the group, which include commentary on the social cost of carbon, credits for electric vehicles, and the stringency of fuel-economy targets. Please join us to learn about these Bren students' experience  as they participated in the policy process.


NOTE: Community colloquia are generally talks of broad interest geared toward a diverse, sophisticated audience. Their purpose is not only to enhance knowledge and understanding, but also to bring people together and promote interaction that will strengthen the community.
