Washington, D.C. — In response to today’s announcement of the Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan released by the Biden-Harris administration and this morning’s event at a Maryland electrical vehicle facility with Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, and White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government of Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:
“We applaud the Biden-Harris administration’s launch of the Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan to advance the movement for climate, jobs, and justice. We also thank Vice President Kamala Harris for her powerful words today envisioning a clean vehicle future, and for her longtime leadership to make that vision a reality. Specifically, this effort will help to create good-paying jobs at every step of the process, including the workers needed to manufacture, install, and maintain electric vehicle supply equipment. Once executed, the Biden-Harris administration’s comprehensive plan will increase access to electric vehicle charging stations across the country. Expanding accessibility to electric vehicle charging stations and jobs is just the beginning to building back better. The time for the Senate to pass the Build Back Better Act with investments that make it easier for working families to purchase and manufacture electric vehicles is right now.”
