We, the undersigned, therefore urge Governor Rick Snyder and the state Legislature to support the success of Michigan's emerging electric car industry by:
* Supporting legislation that would allow electric vehicle buyers to receive a direct rebate instead of a tax credit;
* Encouraging the state and other fleet vehicle purchasers to lease or buy electric vehicles;
* Providing financial incentives for the installation of public and workplace charging stations for electric vehicles;
* Implementing clean fuel standards that require an increasing percentage of electricity and other alternative fuels for powering vehicles within Michigan.
