This alert was just sent out by Will Becketts of the EAA (Electric Automobile Association, not that other one). Read here: http://www.eaaev.org/action/
The California Air Resources Board will be voting on March 27th on a proposal by CARB staff that would reduce the number of Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) from 25,000 to 2,500 over three years. This means the six major automakers would only make 840 ZEVs a year. CARB staff is proposing this change because the automakers say they cannot produce Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) except in tiny quantities in 2012-2014. However, they have already proven they can produce battery ZEVs, and we see no reason to wait for hydrogen.
Please let Governor Schwarzenegger and the California Air Resources Board know your opinion.
