This law would be a disaster to a nascent industry that has enormous potential. I'd rather see a gasoline/diesel surcharge (which would only need to be a fraction of the $1.43 and staged over time to increase as ratio of EVs to ICE vehicles increases). The per mile idea is an invasion of privacy and personal liberty issue and should be opposed on that basis. Certainly, commercial electric vehicles should be exempt -- these haulers of people and cargo are being killed by high fuel prices now. We need some new thinking on this issue.
