Opinion: The Moving Forward Act–10 Ways House Infrastructure Proposal Can Increase Electric Vehicles, Clean Energy, & Resilient Transportation

On July 1, 2020, US House passed their infrastructure proposal, the Moving Forward Act (H.R. 2)*.

This massive infrastructure bill is the result of the work of many committees in the House. The centerpiece is the surface transportation bill (sometimes known as the highway bill) that gets passed about every 5 years. Then other legislative pieces got added, including adding tax incentives for electric vehicles and clean energy. The result is a good bill that will pass out of the House — the question, as always, is what will happen in the Senate.
