California “gasoline superuser” bill advances; focusing ZEV incentives on reducing gasoline use
Green Car Congress
APRIL 20, 2022
The bill, introduced by Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), directs the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to maximize the climate and equity impacts of the state’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) incentive programs by linking the amount of incentive to a driver’s past gasoline or diesel consumption level, with larger amounts for lower income drivers. California’s biggest gasoline users currently are on track to be the last people to switch to ZEVs.
