Description: Authorize a custom license plate for electric vehicles with the proceeds reserved to help fund state highway electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Why This Should Be Supported: Electric vehicles plates would help inform first responders that the vehicle is an electric, would assist law enforcement in identifying electric vehicles for enforcement of charging station parking restrictions, and provide a minimal level of funding to construct new electric vehicle charging stations and provide for their maintenance.
- This could be the mechanism used to identify qualifying zero emission vehicle access to HOV lanes (see HOV Lanes proposal).
- Fees could range from $10 to $50 per plate annually.
Estimated State Costs: $0 (not sure)
