Wisconsin lawmakers are on the record against a ban on gas-power cars and gas-powered stoves.
The State Assembly yesterday approved a plan that would stop state and local governments in Wisconsin from banning cars, trucks, and stoves based on their energy source. State Rep. Ellen Schutt says the idea is to protect choices, and to make sure that Wisconsin’s energy grid is ready for all-electric everything. Governor Evers yesterday said he’s not sure a ban is necessary. He says he’s dedicated to moving toward electric vehicles, and says Wisconsin is taking the right steps in that direction.
