Electric Transportation Transition Study

The Joint Transportation Committee (Committee) must study opportunities for high-consumption fuel users (users) to adopt electric vehicles (EVs) and make recommendations to the Committees and governor by July 1, 2023. The Committee must investigate and determine the following:

  • Number of users that could utilize EVs for a high percentage of their driving needs;
  • Fuel savings and gallons of fuel displaced if users switch to EVs;
  • User attitudes and perceptions of EVs; and,
  • Policies and messages that encourage EV adoption.

The Committee published the report on June 20, 2023.
