Now is your chance to help improve Electric Vehicles! Voting will start today and we need to urge our Senators not to ignore this important part!
Advanced vehicle grants ($2 billion Senate)
Advanced battery system manufacturers would benefit from the Senate's bill, which provides loan guarantees for technology that advocates of the provision say will help the U.S. consume less oil.
Greg Jenner, a Partner at Stoel Rives said that the bill may not pass the Senate.
"As to the current state of the bill, action on the Senate floor so far indicates that there might not be enough votes in the Senate to pass the bill. As a result, negotiations are likely occurring behind the scenes to determine how the bill can be modified to gain the necessary votes. Meanwhile, angry voters are calling their representatives to complain, which will increase the political pressure for significant changes. While everyone acknowledges that a bill will pass in some form, it is not likely to be the version we see now," he said.
