Texas Would Offer $5K Tax Incentive for Plug-in Hybrid Buyers
Texas Gov. Rick Perry doesn’t much care for the “increasingly activist” U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and he’s willing to put Texas in the forefront of promoting plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to get the federal agency off the state’s back.
That, according to Perry’s state of the state address Tuesday, in which he proposed a $5,000 tax credit for Texans who buy plug-in hybrids if they live in “non-attainment” zones for air quality standards. Those include the metro areas of Dallas-Forth Worth, Houston, Galveston, Beaumont, Port Arthur and El Paso.
“Rather than wait for more mandates and punishments for environmental non-attainment, let’s continue encouraging innovation,” Perry said of the proposal.
