State lawmakers are hoping to pass legislation to encourage people to get behind the wheel of a green car. Two bills incentivize drivers with money for more charging stations and access to express lanes, hoping to steer away from smog and move more towards renewable energy.
The Electric Vehicle Grant Fund that made its way through the first committee Monday would use more money to build additional charging stations all over the state, starting with rural locations.
Some drivers and lawmakers said electric cars are key to cleaner air, addressing climate change and saving money in Colorado.
