“We must meet the growing threats posed by a changing climate with increased investments in technology and infrastructure that will help transition us to a 100% clean economy. That should include expanding the accessibility of charging stations and related infrastructure in order to make electric vehicles (EV) more available to the public.

“This bill from Congressman Andy Levin and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a much-needed step on the path toward electrifying our transportation sector. A national network of publicly available charging stations is necessary to make EV’s both affordable and practical for American families. This critical infrastructure is essential to the future of EV’s and to the fight against climate change.”
