NFIB Strongly Supports Legislation to Stop Electrical Vehicle Mandate

Date: April 30, 2024

Electric vehicle legislation is considered an NFIB key vote

In a recent NFIB member ballot, 96%of respondents expressed their belief that the federal government should not restrict purchasing consumer products like gas-powered vehicles. NFIB strongly supports S. 4072, legislation the Senate recently voted on to prevent theEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) from creating a de facto electric vehicle (EV) mandate. This legislation would prohibit the use of funds to implement, administer, or enforce EPA electric vehicle rules. It will be an NFIB Key Vote for the 118th Congress.   

Additionally, Rep. John James and Sen. Pete Ricketts introduced a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution on May 1 to repeal the Biden Administration’s burdensome tailpipe emission rules. 

NFIB applauds Senator Ricketts and Representative James for introducing this resolution to overturn the Biden Administration’s attempt to create a de facto electric vehicle mandate, which would limit consumer choices and increase costs for small businesses. NFIB represents approximately 300,000 small and independent businesses across the country, many of which are based in rural areas. These rural areas lack the infrastructure necessary to accommodate electric vehicles. Small business owners like plumbers, electricians, and landscapers use their vehicles, including pick-up trucks and some vans, as offices on wheels, and any disruption to their day for long charging times is lost business that impacts their families and employees. This burdensome rule will increase costs for small businesses at a time when inflation continues to be the top problem affecting small businesses,” said NFIB’s Principal of Government Relations Andrea McGee. 

NFIB strongly supports the Congressional efforts to repeal or prevent Federal funds to implement the burdensome EPA regulations.
