Thank You! EV Mandates Seek New On-Ramp

Gov. Ned Lamont decided to rescind regulations that would require all new vehicles purchased in Connecticut to be electric. We thank the governor and his team for listening to you! Your efforts made this unprecedented move to push back costly regulations possible. However, this idea has not gone away.

During a press conference, Connecticut House Democrat leadership stated that they would meet to develop a new plan — which may include a special session to quickly push new regulations through the General Assembly.

Let your legislator know that you and your neighbors continue to oppose these EV mandates. Give them a call or send them an email. We know they will listen to you — since they already have! Please, spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors too!

    Submitted the following:

    I strongly urge you to reconsider banning gas powered vehicles in CT. It seems preposterous that CT would simply follow CA direction on a matter of this importance. It makes our grand state appear to be child like in aping its west coast sibling. No matter what the rational is for mimicking CA, CT needs to look to its own uniqueness and the needs of its citizens on a matter of such significance. Banning gas powered vehicles will have a monumental effect on the people of our state, raising prices for consumer goods to levels unaffordable for many of our citizens.

    You should also be more transparent about the process and provide for a full, unrestricted public hearing. The current plan seems restrictive and designed to limit public input. This matter is too important not to give our citizens and business community all the opportunity they deserve to voice their opinions.
