Introduced in the Senate on June 27, 2019, S.2041 Green Spaces, Green Vehicles Act establishes the Green Spaces, Green Vehicles Initiative to facilitate the installation of zero-emissions vehicle infrastructure in national forests, national parks, as well as nearby land owned by willing tribal and local partners.
The proposed legislation appropriates $50 million to:
- allow the federal government to enter into agreements with public, private, or non-profit entities for the acquisition, installation, and operation of zero-emissions vehicle charging and fueling infrastructure.
- purchase zero-emissions vehicles for the National Park Service (NPS) and National Forest Service (NFS) fleets
- create and publish maps and other information regarding the availability of zero-emissions vehicle infrastructure on covered lands.
As a major tourist destination with the most national forest land and the second-most number of national parks, Alaska can be a leader in supporting the use of zero-emissions vehicles within and around our protected lands.
