OpenCongress Summary

This bill seeks to encourage adoption of non-gas vehicles through a combination of tax incentives. It would spend $4.5 billion over the next ten years on tax rebates for buyers of natural gas vehicles and subsidies for manufacturers of the vehicles. It also authorizes $1.5 billion over the next ten years for research and development effort related to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. To pay for it all, it would nearly triple the tax oil companies pay into the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund from 8 cents per barrel to 21 cents.
