"Long Road, Tough Choices Ahead for Biden Car-Charging Pledge"

"President Joe Biden’s plan to crank up electric vehicle infrastructure is short on publicly available details, but electric vehicle advocates already have a long list of ideas on how the administration can make it a reality.

Chief among the unanswered questions are how much the administration’s plan for new chargers is going to cost, who’s going to pay for it, and where they should go.

Despite the lack of answers, the Biden pledge “is being taken very seriously” by states, local governments, and supporters of EV charging, said Ray LaHood, a Republican who was President Barack Obama’s transportation secretary.

“Even the Obama administration didn’t make the kind of commitment Biden is making here,” LaHood said."
