Such reasons include electric grid benefits, increased jobs and economic development, reduced storm water pollution from gasoline drips and leaks at gas stations, savings to consumers on vehicle maintenance, and downward pressure on electricity rates. States should avoid justifying electrification mandates on grounds within the federally-controlled areas of emissions reduction and fuel economy.
