This policy guide — part of the Roadmap for Electric Transportation legislative kit — provides legislators and their staff members an overview of electric vehicle issues and options. It begins by looking at the merits of EV legislation to answer the all-important question: “Why?” From there this resource outlines the “what” and “how” of the many issues and options. Armed with this, legislators and staff can dig into the detailed model legislation and supporting resources in the kit to craft a plan for electrification that saves consumers money, reduces environmental damage and meets the particular goals of their state.

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