North Dakota lawmakers have introduced a bill that would create an incentive for fleets who purchase natural gas vehicles and provide funds to build out fueling infrastructure.

The state's H.B. 1446 would set aside $1 million for the biennium for cost sharing on the construction of natural gas fueling stations and $3 million for cost sharing on the conversion of vehicles to burn natural gas rather than gasoline or diesel, reports the Bismarck Tribune.

As currently written, the bill would set up a vehicle conversion program and award grants for as much as $7,500 for the purchase or conversion of a non-commercial natural gas and for as much as $15,000 for a commercial vehicle that uses natural gas.
