Today the Mobility Choice Coalition released its Blueprint for Mobility Choice – a 10-point plan that offers a fiscally responsible, free market oriented approach to expanding competition among transportation modes for the purpose of reducing oil's strategic value. The full plan is available on the Mobility Choice web site.

The Mobility Choice Coalition is a bipartisan alliance including Anne Korin and Gal Luft, co-directors of the Institute for Analysis of Global Security (IAGS); R. James Woolsey, former CIA director; Robert C. McFarlane, former National Security Advisor; Cliff May, president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; and Deron Lovaas of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

“America’s dependence on oil not only undermines our economy, it also poses serious risks to our national security. We must act now to strip oil of its status as a strategic commodity by eliminating government regulations that stifle competition and promote inefficiencies in our transportation system,” said Anne Korin.

The Blueprint for Mobility Choice lays out four guiding principles on how to move to a competitive transportation market in America. Following these principles, Mobility Choice proposes 10 transportation policies that will remove barriers to competition among transportation modes.

Mobility Choice is a project of the Institute for Analysis of Global Security (IAGS) – a non-profit public educational organization focusing on energy security. Mobility Choice is dedicated to managing the national security and economic vulnerabilities posed by America’s oil dependence that stem from oil's status as a strategic commodity second to none.
