GA EV Tax credit in Jeopardy!

Final Update for this year:
A modified version of the bill passed the Senate, but the House voted to keep the original version, which was not reconsidered by the Senate on the last day. The Bill is dead for this year. We will update you with information to help keep the tax credits in place until they are truly able to compete on their own.

Unfortunately, HB257, which would remove the EV tax credit passed the House on March 3. It was amended to become effective July 1. Here is a tally of the vote; let your representative know that EVs are good for Georgia and pay for themselves by keeping dollars in the state that would be spent on oil. If the bill makes it back to them, you may be able to sway their vote.

The bill is currently under consideration by the Senate Natural Resources and the Environment Committee. Contact the members and let them know that the current tax credit is good both for the environment and the economy of Georgia. It pays for itself. Our friends at the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy have a handy template to get you started and send your message. Do it today!

Call your State Representative before Monday March 3 to let the know that Georgia still needs to keep the EV tax credit. It is a generous benefit, but it helps keep money in our state and clears the air around us. You can find your representative here: http://openstates.org/ga/
