The Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) signed on to a letter coordinated by the American Energy Alliance (AEA) U.S. House of Representative Ways & Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady “to strongly object to any effort to expand the current electrical vehicle tax credit in any way.” The letter continues:

The justification of this tax credit was to spur innovation and encourage companies to offer electrical vehicle options, not to permanently subsidize sales.  While we believe that the tax credit is misguided as a whole, at least its drafters had the foresight to limit the harm that it could do by ensuring that it only applied to the first 200,000 electric cars for a given manufacturer.  That admirable restraint should not be jettisoned now.
