Allen pointed to rules the state recently adopted that would ban the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035. The changes also target the year 2025, when 25% of all new cars on the market in Oregon would need to be electric.
“To set those legally binding requirements, and then make it harder, more confusing and more expensive for people who are trying to do their part to contribute to them….it just really sends a mixed message,” said Allen.
