USA: Advocates push for electric-car tax credit boost

SALT LAKE CITY — Clean-energy advocates are teaming up with legislators to boost a tax credit for people who buy electric cars.

The credit would go from $605 to $2,500, the same for compressed natural gas-powered cars. Rep. Lowry Snow, R-Santa Clara, will sponsor a measure to equalize the tax credits for action by the Legislature in January.

“The purpose behind it is to bring to par those credits for people that make investments in both those kinds of vehicles,” he told the Deseret News.

Advocates for both types of vehicles gathered at the Utah Capitol last week to press the Utah Public Service Commission to help champion measures that curb tailpipe emissions and urban pollution.

The PSC will deliver a set of recommendations to the Legislature next month.

In a related move, Rep. Patrice Arent, D-Millcreek, will sponsor a bill to exempt charging stations from the hassle of being regulated as a utility.
