MEMORANDUM

Posted: August 31, 2023 03:33 PM
From: Senator John I. Kane
To: All Senate members
Subject: Residential Electric Car Charging Stations
 
I am introducing legislation to allow residents of condominiums and common interest communities to install electric car charging stations in their designated parking spaces. Residents will be responsible for the cost of installing the electric car charging stations. The legislation will bar unreasonable restrictions and enforcement against the use and expansion of electric car charging stations as well as the deliberate disregard of applications.
 
Electric Vehicles have major benefits including improving air quality by lowering emissions and creating new jobs in the manufacture and distribution of these products. That is why leading auto manufacturers including General Motors are ramping up production of electric vehicles and are planning to phase out most gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles.
 
My legislation is modeled after New Jersey's and New York’s efforts to facilitate the expansion of electric car charging stations. Let’s join our neighboring states in their mission to make electric car ownership hassle-free and accessible.
 
It’s time to take important steps to address climate change while also addressing the barriers that may impeded electric vehicle ownership.



Introduced as SB1125
