President’s Actions to Accelerate EV Deployment Exemplify Sprint-To-The-Finish Attitude

WASHINGTON -- The White House today announced a broad package of initiatives to foster the development of electric vehicles, including a nationwide infrastructure system to support them.

The following is a statement by Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

"This all-in approach exemplifies the sprint-to-the-finish attitude we've come to expect from someone who promised us hope and change. Eight years later, President Obama has done more than his 43 predecessors combined to protect Americans and future generations from the ravages of climate change."
