The Washington State Department of Commerce and the Washington State Department of Transportation must establish an interagency EV coordinating council (Council) to advance transportation electrification. The Council must:

  • Develop a state-wide transportation electrification strategy;
  • Identify electric vehicle infrastructure grant-related funding;
  • Coordinate grant funding criteria across agency grant programs;
  • Develop a robust public and private outreach plan that includes engaging with community organizers and local governments;
  • Create an industry EV advisory committee;
  • Ensure the new strategies and programs benefit underserved communities; and,
  • Provide an annual report to legislature committees summarizing EV implementation progress, gaps, and resource needs.
