Iowa Fails to Pass Bill to Protect Vehicle Choice

Iowa failed to pass a SAN-supported bill (S.F. 411) to ensure consumers' choice of vehicle power plants and fuel by preventing a county or city in the state from limiting access to certain power sources. Under current law, new gas- and diesel-powered vehicle sales may be threatened if narrow energy policies are adopted. 

The SAN believes that Iowa residents, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families. The bill passed the Senate last year but was not taken up by the House before adjournment. In 2024, the House failed to consider the bill prior to the required legislative deadline.
