Congresswoman Janice Hahn, 44th District, California

Some of Congresswoman Hahn's comments;

"Good afternoon, Long Beach!  This event is one of more than 200 events happening around the country to celebrate National Drive Electric Week.  I am one of 2 Members of Congress who drives an EV.  I have a Nissan Leaf that I love.  It is fun to drive, I feel good about not polluting the air we breathe or adding to global warming, and it feels great not stopping at the gas station!  I know that Electric Vehicles are the cars of the future and I want to accelerate their adoption.  That is why I have introduced legislation - E-CAR Act - to increase the number of charging stations and make plugging-in as convenient as going to a gas station.  We are already seeing incredible progress!  Just this week we hit an amazing threshold 500,000 electric vehicles on the road in America!  Just a few years ago that sounded like a pipe dream but because of smart policies and smart EV buyers like you--we made it a reality.  It is go good to see you all here and thank you for getting the message out about EVs!"
--From Congresswoman Janice Hahn's speaking notes.

Congresswoman Hahn also mentioned that highway funds are from gas taxes, and with more electric cars and less gas being purchased, there needs to be some kind of tax to replace the gas tax.  She also wants zero emissions seaports because this area's children have more asthma because of port emissions.
