It's all about the revenue-Illinois might start charging $1,000 per year to own an electric vehicle

#3 So desperate for cash they'll dump the environmental folks.

Unless they think taxation is the way to get more people to do it.

#6 A hefty annual fine for failing to burn corn-gas and fuel tax avoidance. Pay up or move elsewhere.

#7 Gas tax pays for roads (well what the pols don't spend elsewhere). Electric cars don't pay that tax but they do pay for the roads. It was inevitable the politicians would go after unclaimed booty.

#8  A hefty annual fine for failing to burn corn-gas and fuel tax avoidance

If there was a way to turn corn-gas back into food AND a Value Added Tax on each stage of the process, you could close the loop and create a perpetual funding machine.

Note: if you could turn corn-gas back into its original components, namely food and dinosaurs, that would be even cooler.

#9 Electric cars running off of thermal power plants is stupid, ignorant, and delusional thinking. Cars running off natural gas, like commuters and municipal fleets make lots more sense.

#10 if you could turn corn-gas back into its original components

Methane. It's all about Methane.
