COLTURA TESTIFIES IN SUPPORT OF AB1267 – EV INCENTIVES FOR GASOLINE-BURDENED FAMILIES
On March 27, 2023, Janelle London testified on behalf of AB 1267, a pioneering bill that would advance Gasoline Superusers’ conversion to EVs. Authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), the bill would add a new EV incentive for Gasoline Superusers and prioritize lower-income Superusers.
The bill is gathering bipartisan support as it moves through the legislative process. The Assembly Transportation Committee passed it 15-0 on March 28, and the Natural Resources Committee passed it 11-0 on April 11. The bill now heads to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
Coltura is the organizational sponsor of the bill. Its growing coalition of supporters includes Green Latinos, Coalition for Clean Air, CALSTART, EV Hybrid Noire, Breathe California, Valley CAN, Plug In America, The Climate Center, Acterra, ZEV 2030, Silicon Valley Youth Climate Action, Elders Climate Action Nor Cal, Sunrise Silicon Valley and various 350 chapters.
