Some say electric vehicles offer the best way to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil, while others believe there are still too many problems with this new technology. The president and some leaders from each party on Capitol Hill have said they are willing to work together on electric vehicle legislation, but every federal dollar spent is drawing increased scrutiny. Robbie Diamond, an advocate for electrification of the transportation system, and Charles Lane, an opponent of the approach, will come together at the Bipartisan Policy Center to debate the current and future state of electric vehicles.
