Advanced Vehicle Technology Act Likely to Pass, Says Stabenow
U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow said today that she believes the Senate is likely to pass legislation that would reauthorize and expand a grant program for electric vehicle development within weeks.
The bill, called the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act, would increase the existing U.S. Department of Energy program by about $200 million annually to a total of $2.85 billion over five years.
Passed by the U.S. House in September, the legislation — aimed at spurring research and development for electric vehicles and electric vehicle components — is pending in the Senate.
