We have companies in Oregon right now working on designing and building electric vehicles, and the parts that go with them. These businesses employ skilled workers with good-paying jobs, and produce a product that emits 5 times less CO2 than the average combustion-engine vehicle.

Oregonians have already shown an interest in vehicles with reduced emissions and better fuel economy, and by expanding the tax credit we already offer for the purchase of a hybrid-electric car to include electric vehicles, we can give Oregon consumers a nudge towards the next option in alternative, fuel-efficient transportation. This concept was ultimately passed as HB 2078.
