  • Encourage the Senate to Extend Green Clean Air Vehicle Stickers

    Plug In America needs your help to maintain the successful carpool access program which has helped us get over 40,000 plug-in-hybrid vehicles on California’s roads in just 3 short years. A big incentive to the buyers of these vehicles has been solo access to California carpool lanes. The successful adoption of plug-in hybrids however has already caused us to exceed the 40,000 green carpool access stickers authorized by the original California legislation. While full electric vehicles will still qualify for the white carpool access stickers, plug-in-hybrid buyers are out of luck.

    According to a recent LA Times article, emissions from automobiles actually decreased in California between 2011 and 2012 despite an increase in automobile registrations, in large part due to increasing adoption of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Let’s keep that momentum building.

    Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi has introduced legislation to increase the limit of green carpool access stickers to 85,000 which would extend this incentive for another 45,000 plug-in hybrid buyers. AB 2013 has already passed the assembly and has moved on to the CA senate.

    Plug In America asks you to fill out the form below to contact your state senator and urge them to pass AB2013 as soon as possible. Let’s get this important piece of legislation on the Governor’s desk for signature so that we can continue California’s rapid move to electric drive, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving our air quality, and strengthening our economy.
