Democrats ‘out of touch’ pushing electric cars amid high gas prices: Alaska senator
Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, says that Biden surrendered American strength and independence on the cusp of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves will decide the fate of a bill passed in the state legislature Thursday aimed at restricting electric car manufacturers from opening new brick-and-mortar dealerships unless they comply with the same laws followed by traditional carmakers.
Introduced in the House in January by Rep. Tray Lamar, a Republican from Senatobia, the HB 401 now awaits a decision from the state's Republican governor, who has not indicated if he will sign the measure into law or not.
Shortly before it was passed in the Senate on Thursday, the bill sparked intense debate among GOP lawmakers, according to The Associated Press.
Opponents said it would betray conservative principles by setting a government policy that interferes with the automobile market, while supporters said it would ensure all car manufacturers play by the same rules, regardless of business model.
