Michigan needs to get back to creating Michigan jobs. The electric vehicle sector gives us the opportunity to put people back to work. Electric cars and advanced batteries are elements to a stronger automobile industry.Michigan’s advanced battery and electric vehicle industries:
- create thousands of jobs,
- reduce dependence on foreign oil, and
- save consumers money at the pump.
We urge Michigan policymakers to continue their support of Michigan’s emerging electric car industry by enacting policies and education programs that encourage the purchase and increased use of electric vehicles and help build-out the electric charging infrastructure.
