WASHINGTON—Today, the Biden administration released its budget proposal, which includes sustained and strong funding commitments for electrifying our transportation sector.

Electrification Coalition Executive Director Ben Prochazka responded:

“Transitioning away from oil in favor of electric transportation will improve our national and economic security and should continue to be a high priority for the federal government. The president’s budget proposal continues the momentum started by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act. It will accelerate the shift to electric vehicles, including cars, trucks, and buses, and the deployment of the necessary EV charging infrastructure to accommodate the millions of EVs hitting the road in the coming years.”
