In March, President Biden put forward a bold plan to invest $174 billion in electrifying the nation’s transportation system. In the newly-released Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, though, that investment has been cut to a mere $7.5 billion*, just 4% of what President Biden wanted for Americans!
The original proposal provided:
All of that has been cut down to just $5 billion for EV charging infrastructure and $2.5 billion for zero-emission school buses*. Not only is this a tiny fraction of what we need, but all of the funding for consumer rebates has been removed!
There is a possibility that additional EV funding could be added into the upcoming reconciliation bill in the Senate, but this is FAR from a done deal, due to opposition in Congress.
Tell your members of Congress the president’s original proposal to fund our clean transportation future is crucial for our great nation! And please forward this email to your friends and other lists and ask them to take action as well or direct them to RealEVChange.org.
P.S. Plug In America is working closely with our EV allies and reaching out directly to Congress and the White House. Your financial contributions are critical at this historic juncture.
*These numbers are changing rapidly and we will update them as more details emerge.
