Charge Ahead Bill Charges Forward

[LegislationCharge Ahead California Campaign aims to place one million electric vehicles on California’s roads over the next 10 years and ensure that all Californians, especially lower income communities most impacted by air pollution, benefit from zero tailpipe emissions.

After first passing unanimously through the Senate Transportation & Housing Committee, SB 1275 (de Leόn), the Charge Ahead California bill, passed through the Senate Environmental Quality Committee on April 30th, 2014, with bipartisan support. Senator Lara’s SB 1204, an important and complementary bill, also passed out of the committee. Next stop for both: Senate Appropriations.

“There is growing appreciation and support for the Charge Ahead California Initiative among our elected officials as we aim to clean up the transportation sector in California, create green jobs and provide access to zero emission vehicles for communities most in need,” said Bahram Fazeli, Policy Director for Communities for a Better Environment, a co-sponsor of the bill.
