U.S. Senate Bill Marks Progress on Clean Transportation and Electric Vehicles, But Leaves A Lot To Be Desired

The U.S. Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works unveiled a major transportation bill today, which includes a section on climate change that shifts some federal highway money to Complete Streets -- a  program that makes streets safer for walking and biking. The legislation also moves money toward investments in public transportation designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and authorizes funding for an expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

Talk about a captive market: For most of us, it's next to impossible to work, shop or go to school without a car. Auto lenders are taking full advantage.

Arizonans want cleaner cars and trucks that drive farther while burning less gas, but the Trump administration is throwing up roadblocks to progress.
