The North Dakota state senate has passed SB 2061, a bill that would implement a a road use fee for electric and hybrid vehicles.
If passed, the bill would establish a $110 annual road fee for EVs, and a $50 fee for electrics. The money collected would flow into the highway tax distribution fund.
The bill also provides for a legislative management study to consider studying current methods, using the electric vehicle infrastructure coalition, led by the department of transportation, to collaborate with the North Dakota utility industry, and North Dakota electric vehicle stakeholder groups, to design a jointly owned public and private network of electric vehicle infrastructure to support both commercial and noncommercial vehicles and make recommendations regarding electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The bill now moves to the House for consideration.
