The Rio Grande Foundation is a staunch opponent of government mandating ANY type of vehicle and we fought hard against MLG’s costly and unworkable EV mandate. Sadly, the Gov. is at it again. Now she plans to mandate that parking spots in new commercial developments and apartment complexes be outfitted with EV charging stations costing $18,000 or more OR made “EV Ready” which means nearly $2,000 per spot to provide the infrastructure necessary to add a charging station later.
RGF’s president recently sat. down with KOAT Channel 7. to discuss the issue.
