Congress wants to create nationwide EV charging network
 

 
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. lawmakers on Thursday will unveil legislation that would create a nationwide electric vehicle (EV) charging network to promote the shift from gasoline-powered vehicles and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Democratic Representatives Andy Levin and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are releasing legislation dubbed the "EV Freedom Act" to create a network of high-speed charging stations within five years along the public roads of the national highway system in the United States at a U.S. Capitol press conference at 12 p.m. EST (1700 GMT).

Levin represents a suburban Detroit district that includes many autoworkers, while Ocasio-Cortez is from New York who helped unveil the "Green New Deal" earlier this year to transition the U.S. economy away from fossil fuels. They will be joined by environmental groups and the United Auto Workers union.

U.S. automakers like General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co are spending billions of dollars to build a series of new electric vehicles. EV automaker Tesla Inc is deploying its own network of fast-charging stations.

The 18-page bill reviewed by Reuters notes a lack of charging stations pose a significant barrier to higher electric vehicle sales.

"There is just no way that we will get to broad scale adoption of electric vehicles until we crush range anxiety and then it will happen precipitously," Levin told Reuters.

Levin said creating a new fleet of charging stations nationwide will be expensive but will create good paying jobs. He said the government could partner with companies that are currently building EV charging stations.

Democrats running for U.S. president have pledged to spend billions of dollars on new charging stations and a House Democratic infrastructure plan released last week would also boost government funding for stations.

Many Democratic candidates have called for eliminating or largely phasing out gasoline-powered vehicles by 2030 or 2035 and back significant rebates to vehicle owners for scrapping polluting vehicles and shifting to electric vehicles.

Senator Bernie Sanders wants to spend $85.6 billion building a national EV charging infrastructure network "similar to the gas stations and rest stops we have today."

Former Vice President Joe Biden says he would work to support the "deployment of more than 500,000 new public charging outlets by 2030."

Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg would require all new cars by 2035 be electric and would build a highway charging network with the goal of a station every 50 miles (80 km).

At the same time, Republican president Donald Trump opposed efforts in Congress last year to expand a $7,500 tax credit for electric vehicles and has called for eliminating it.
