Washington State electric car credits expire, agencies miss mandates

On the same day that Washington State’s electric-car tax credits expired on June 1, an advocacy organization issued a report that state agencies have also done very little to meet a deadline to buy electric cars.

The state passed a law in 2007 requiring that all public agencies meet 100 percent of their transportation needs with electricity or biofuel by June 1, 2018. Yet less than 1 percent of the 30,000 vehicles owned by the state are electric vehicles.

Only four of 31 local government entities that Coltura surveyed have plans to switch to electric cars.
