Other congressmen opposing the bill argue why EVs should be given special consideration if there is no law prohibiting gasoline vehicles from being parked in front of a gas pump and not using it. There are also voices saying that regulation of EV charging spots should be left to local governments. Some thought the $100 fine was too high, but countered that the $25 fine was more appropriate.
What the failed bill two years ago did not include was that if an EV charging station doubles as a handicap spot, vehicles with handicap placards could legally park there, regardless of powertrain type. is a new provision.
