About this Legislation
Chief Author

Senate HF 4293 is legislation for Minnesota’s State Government and Transportation Committees, providing policy and funding for the operation, administration, and election of state government and for the Department of Transportation.

The Omnibus Bill contains provisions that restrict Minnesota’s ability to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by creating barriers for electric vehicle adoption. The bill includes language to prevent the MPCA from implementing Clean Cars in Minnesota or from regulating any fuel emissions for motorized vehicles or equipment. In addition, the bill limits the ability for the State to install electric vehicle infrastructure, precludes the state from using federal funding for certain EV infrastructure, and increases fees on electric vehicles.
