Senate Passes Clean Vehicle Infrastructure Bill, Now Moves To House

On November 19, the Senate voted 43 to 6 to pass Senate Bill 596 (Mensch-R-Montgomery) encouraging the development of clean transportation infrastructure to support electric, natural gas and hydrogen vehicles.

-- 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.
