Pennsylvania state legislators want to slap electric vehicle owners with a $250 annual tax.
The bill has bipartisan support, and both chambers of the legislature are controlled by state Republicans.
Back in February 2017, we reported on the fossil fuel industry’s push for EV taxes.
Shannon Baker-Branstetter, manager of cars and energy policy for Consumer Reports, writes in the Pennsylvania Capital-Star that the $250 tax is “well above what average new gasoline-powered vehicle owners pay in gas taxes.”.
This tax will only prolong Pennsylvanians’ reliance on the foreign monarchs and potentates that control the fossil fuel industry.
Pennsylvania ranks second in the USA for both nuclear power generation and natural gas production, and is the third-largest coal producing state.
Pennsylvania should invoke the spirit – and discoveries – of its founding father and seize independence by going all-in on electric vehicles. »
