Proactive state legislative action and planning are needed to realize the full benefits of electric transportation for citizens, the economy and the environment. Some states may be starting from scratch while others have existing legislation. This model legislation — part of the Roadmap for Electric Transportation legislative kit — offers a menu of options for most provisions, allowing legislators to choose what works best for the circumstances in their state. Annotations explain the pros and cons of each provision and analyze the various options offered.

The legislative kit was written by Camille Kadoch. Contributors include Frederick Weston, David Moskovitz and Mark LeBel.
