A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee advanced nine bills Jan. 9, including H.R. 5545 (116) from Chairman Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) that would authorize billions of dollars to expand the nation’s electric vehicle charging network.
H.R. 5545, the “New Opportunities to Expand Healthy Air Using Sustainable Transportation Act of 2020” or “NO EXHAUST Act of 2020,” would authorize more than $6 billion annually in grants and rebates for electric vehicle infrastructure deployment and manufacturing around the country over the next decade. It also would mandate that 100 percent of light-duty vehicles be alternative fueled vehicles beginning in fiscal year 2025.
In a media statement, Rep. Rush said the measure would promote the domestic manufacture and use of advanced, fuel-efficient vehicles and zero-emission vehicles and encourage electrification of the transportation sector.
