Electric Vehicle Charging Bill Left in Conference

As previously reported, VACo supports HB 107 (Sullivan) as this bill would create the Electric Vehicle Rural Infrastructure Program and Fund.  The Program and Fund would make available up to $25 million each fiscal year and assist developers by offsetting up to 70 percent of the non-utility cost of electric vehicle charging stations.  According to the provisions outlined in HB 107, rural Virginia localities would benefit from the passage of this bill.

HB 107 would go on to pass the House and Senate with each chamber adopting different language and amendments.  This would lead to the bill being sent to a conference committee.  Unfortunately, no further action was taken and the bill was left in conference effectively killing the bill.

VACo would like to thank Delegate Sullivan for bringing forth and advocating for this legislation.
