A Special One-On-One Conversation about the 2020 U.S. Election with Dan Sperling of the University of California, Davis
As President-elect Biden prepares to take office, where things will end up in Washington next year are coming into focus following the most unusual election in many decades. Two Senate seats in Georgia will be filled via a run-off election in January and will determine control of the U.S. Senate. With a strong advocate in the White House, transportation electrification is poised to gain more support in Washington.
While the extent to which the issue will be greeted by a more generous U.S. Congress is still to be determined, the change in leadership at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue will undoubtedly cause many to alter their near-term priorities.
In this episode of EV Hub Live, Nick Nigro will sit down with transportation policy guru, Dan Sperling, the founding Director of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Davis and member of the California Air Resources Board. We’ll discuss the implications of the election on state ZEV programs, federal policy, and other key policies and programs related to EVs. We’ll hear where Dan thinks things will go over the next year as the state legislatures and governors get going, Washington receives a new Congress, and a new President is sworn in.
