Hochul expands electric vehicle charging, but activists say it is not enough

Jul 21, 2023 12:50 pm

Nick Reisman reports at New York State of Politics that Gov. Kathy Hochul's administration announced this week $15 million to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure in New York. But some activists don't think Hochul is doing enough to fight climate change. Alex Beauchamp of Food and Water Watch says, "Climate change is already here and we're already to paying for it.... So, not only do we need to move the state off fossil fuels, we also need an enormous amount of money to deal with the impacts of climate change that are already here and are going to get worse." NYPIRG's Blair Horner wants a bill passed forcing companies deemed responsible for pollution to pay to pay for the necessary infrastructure changes. "They're responsible.... They lied about the threat, undermined the science and bamboozled the public and now we're going to pay the price." Read more about this story at New York State of Politics.
