CR letter to California Legislature in support of clean transportation programs

As the California Governor prepares to present a revised budget proposal to the state Legislature on May 14, Consumer Reports is urging lawmakers to support smart investments in clean transportation programs.

In a letter to state legislators, the nonprofit, nonpartisan CR says California initiatives to promote adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) will help save consumers money, stimulate the state economy, and help battle climate change. The legislature should fully fund clean transportation programs and require that the majority of those investments be made in historically disadvantaged and low-income communities, CR says.

California lawmakers have until June 15 to pass the budget in the Legislature.
