California measure to tax rich for more EVs falling short


Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A California ballot measure to boost taxes on the rich to put more electric cars on the road is trailing with about one-third of votes counted. Proposition 30 would add a 1.75% tax on incomes of more than $2 million. Most of the money raised would add more electric vehicles and charging stations to California roads. One-fifth would go to wildfire fighting resources. Transportation and wildfires are two major sources of carbon emissions and air pollution. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom opposes the measure. He says its a taxpayer-funded giveaway to rideshare company Lyft, which spent at least $45 million supporting the measure.
