Electric-Vehicles Bolstered With New Calif. Legislation

September 24, 2014

California's Gov. Jerry Brown has signed several pieces of legislation that will bolster alternative fuel and technology vehicles by 2023.

Gov. Brown signed a bill on Sept. 21 that sets in motion his goal to have 1 million zero-emission or near-zero-emission vehicles on the road in the next decade. The legislation directs the state's Air Resources Board to draft a financial plan to meet that goal, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Brown also signed a bill that would increase the allowed number of battery-electric vehicles using the carpool lane from 55,000 to 70,000 cars. By increasing this number by 15,000, the state would issue additional stickers to drivers, according to a press release from Brown's office. Fleet vehicles are eligible for the program.
