We can't let this get stalled, larded up with pet projects, weakened, and potentially killed. The current proposal is well thought out and focused. We need to get the Electrification Coalition's proposed legislation passed now- before the mid term elections.
The bill just passed the Senate committee.
Sponsor: Sen. Byron Dorgan [D-ND]
Lamar Alexander [R-TN]
Jeff Merkley [D-OR]
I don't think the fact that a R senator from TN is co-sponsoring the bill - and that Nissan is based in TN - is a coincidence.
