States Consider Charging Fees for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

Lawmakers tasked with finding new revenue streams to fund infrastructure projects increasingly are asking drivers of electric and hybrid vehicles to pay their fair share of infrastructure fees. Most recently, the North Carolina Senate suggested that motorists who drive hybrids pay an extra $50 for the annual registration fee, and that those who drive all-electric cars pay an extra $100. The Michigan House Transportation Committee also took up the issue of whether to create a new tax on electric and hybrid vehicles.
