“It’s important that EVs aren’t just a luxury but that they are the most affordable and accessible choice for all Americans,” Speakes-Backman said.
Republicans are concerned that a focus on electric vehicles could ultimately hurt consumers by driving up prices and eliminate jobs.

“It seems counter-intuitive to me,” Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., agreed.
He said he doesn’t think electric vehicles have the power to move the combines and tractors that fuel the Midwest’s economy.
“In the world I live in, we need power,” he said.
