Minnesota Lawmaker Proposes Taxing Electricity At EV Charging Stations

St. Cloud Times (via Transport Topics) reports, Minnesota State Senator Jeff Howe (R-Rockville) has doubled down on his proposal to increase fees on electric vehicles. Last week, he proposed a bill (SF 1602)  to tax electricity as fuel at electric vehicle charging stations. “I’m not against EVs,” Howe told the newspaper. “I just think we need to have the infrastructure in place to provide for our road network. And I’m trying to be fair about it.”
