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.

    “… at no cost to the federal government”???? How does this get paid for? Does the senator live in a world of make-believe? The taxpayers will be paying for another aristocrat’s freebie!

    Is PEP offering free charging stations to Congress?
