Bill aims to accelerate purchase of clean cars through new sales tax incentive
(Sacramento, CA) - Assemblymember Phil Ting (D - San Francisco) re-introduced legislation aimed at boosting electric vehicle sales to meet California’s climate and air quality goals through reducing state sales taxes associated with the purchase of zero-emission and other clean vehicles.
“This bill enables Californians to save money while doing something good for the environment,” said Ting. “We cannot confront climate change without changing the cars we drive. Governor Brown has set a high bar for change and it needs a powerful jump start to be achieved. There are more clean cars are on the market today than ever before and consumers need an incentive to buy them.”
