FuelCell – Gas-cell Invoice Makes it By means of First Committee – NewsRadio 560 KPQ
State Senate Invoice 5000 handed out of the Senate Atmosphere, Power and Expertise Committee Thursday and has now been referred to the Senate Transportation Committee for additional consideration.
Senator Brad Hawkins defined that the invoice goals to cut back the gross sales tax on purchases of fuel-cell electrical autos as a part of an eight-year, statewide pilot venture.
“The people of North Central Washington have been leaders in clean energy for decades with their hydropower and now potentially with hydrogen.” stated Hawkins, “I can really see how we could have vehicles, transit buses, school buses, and someday short-haul agricultural vehicles all powered by our home-produced hydrogen.”
By means of the invoice Hawkins goals to supply fuel-cell electrical autos with the identical gross sales tax exemption as conventional plug-in electrical autos.
Hawkins’ laws has almost 30 co-sponsors.
