Alaska Fails to Pass Bill to Protect Vehicle Choice

The Alaska legislature failed to pass a SAN-supported bill (H.B. 375) to ensure consumers' choice of vehicle power plants and fuel by preventing a state agency, county, or city from limiting access to internal combustion engines. Under current law, new gas- and diesel-powered vehicle sales may be threatened if narrow energy policies are adopted. 

The SAN believes that Alaska residents, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families. The Senate Committee on Transportation passed the bill, but the full Senate failed to consider the bill prior to the required legislative deadline.

Thank you to everyone who voiced support for this effort.
