Louisiana state senator seeks to eliminate subsidies for alternative fuel vehicles

March 29, 2017 |

In Louisiana, a state senator has proposed a bill that would eliminate the current 36% tax break on alternative fuel cars including those for ethanol and biodiesel, claiming the state can’t afford to continue to subsidize cleaner fuels. The program is set to increase to 50% on June 30, 2018. Not surprisingly, the propane gas association as well as at least one environmental group have come out against the proposal while other green groups say they’re still revising the proposal before taking a stand. The oil industry is also so far mum.
