Levin Looks To Have Charging Stations On Capital Hill

DETROIT (WWJ) Michigan Senator Carl Levin says he plans to introduce legislation next week to create charging stations for electric vehicles on Capitol Hill.

Levin says establishing the charging stations at no cost to the federal government would help encourage electric cars in the Capitol complex.

Some lawmakers have been seeking recharging stations in parking garages and parking lots near the Capitol to promote the technology.

But the changes would require legislation.

Levin has said he plans to buy a Chevrolet Volt.
