Washington, D.C. – In response to the introduction of the EV Freedom Act by Reps. Andy Levin and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Government Affairs Advocate Darien Davis:

“We’re excited to see Representatives Andy Levin and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez re-introduce the EV Freedom Act. This comprehensive policy would help to make pollution-free vehicles more accessible to drivers across the country. Furthermore, the EV Freedom Act prioritizes funding for environmental justice communities while creating good-paying union jobs. We urge Congress to fund clean transportation infrastructure as part of an American Jobs package to support climate action, jobs and justice.”
