Senate Appropriations Meets Nov. 18 To Consider Clean Vehicle Infrastructure Bill
The Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to meet November 18 to consider Senate Bill 596 (Mensch-R-Montgomery) encouraging the development of clean transportation infrastructure to support electric, natural gas and hydrogen vehicles.
The legislation would--
-- Establish a state goal of increasing electrification by at least 50 percent over currently forecasted levels by 2030;
-- Require the development of regional electrification infrastructure frameworks for metropolitan areas;
-- Direct electric utilities to develop infrastructure implementation plans to support the development of these networks under Public Utility Commission oversight; and
-- Direct the Governor to submit recommendations to the General Assembly and PUC on strategies to promote other clean transportation options, including CNG and hydrogen.
The meeting will be in the Rules Room off the floor, which means it will be announced at some point later in the day.
