Vermont Rep. Peter Welch (D) wants to male electric vehicles more affordable for middle income Americans by increasing the EV tax credit to $10,000.

“If we’re going to make real progress on climate change and we’re going to reduce the cost of transportation, by the way, the cost of gas to our consumers, then we want to make this technology available,” Welch said at an electric vehicle charging station near the Statehouse.

“More electric vehicles are needed because the transportation sector is the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases in Vermont,” he said. “Electric vehicles have become more practical because battery technology is improving, making it possible for people to drive longer distances without charging.”

Welch also co-sponsored The Energy Efficiency Improvement Act, H.R. 2126 with Rep. David McKinley (R-WV).

He said he planned to introduce the legislation for the Electric Vehicle Act when he returns to Washington D.C.
