President Joe Biden endorsed legislation introduced by U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) that would expand existing tax credits for electric vehicles during a visit to Michigan last week.
The legislation, developed with Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), would extend current tax credit legislation and add incentive for Americans to purchase vehicles made with union labor.
“My Build Back Better plan will boost our manufacturing capacity, investing in new and re-tooled facilities that employ American workers with good wages and benefits,” Biden said. “That includes grants to kickstart new battery and parts production. That includes purchasing incentives for families to buy clean, union-made vehicles like the ones championed by Debbie and Dan, in the Senate and the House.”
