Take That, California! Wyoming Legislators Draft Resolution Banning Electric Vehicles By 2035• Cowboy State Daily
The resolution's sponsors say Senate Joint Resolution 4 is a response to laws other states are implementing to eliminate gas-powered vehicles.
The resolution's sponsor, Sen. Jim Anderson, R-Casper, told Cowboy State Daily the intention of the proposal, titled "Phasing Out New Electric Vehicle Sales By 2035," is to push back against bans on new sales of cars with internal combustion engines in states like California and New York.
"The Legislature would be saying, 'If you don't like our petroleum cars, well, we don't like your electric cars,'" Anderson said.
