Ranking Member Larsen Applauds Funding for EV Charging, Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Washington, D.C.— Today, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Rick Larsen (D-WA) issued the following statement after the Federal Highway Administration announced over $622 million in funding through the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (CFI) grant program. This funding will support 47 projects across the country to create publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) charging.

“Today’s funding will help advance generational change on our roadways, providing community access to charging stations, making electric vehicles a more practical option for Americans, and reducing pollution across the country,” Ranking Member Larsen said. “From providing chargers for students on campuses and expanding chargers along rural corridors, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law continues to create jobs by building cleaner, greener, safer roads across the country.”
