Senator’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law provides Arizona $11.3 million this year to make electric vehicle charging stations widely available across the state

PHOENIX – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema hosted a roundtable with Arizona clean energy industry leaders and the Arizona Technology Council to discuss the historic investments the Sinema-led Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law makes in clean energy and technology.
“Our bipartisan infrastructure law makes a once-in-a-generation investment in electric vehicles – making our air cleaner and creating good-paying jobs. Glad to hear from the Arizona Technology Council about how we can continue working together to expand economic opportunities and reduce emissions,” said Sinema, co-author and lead negotiator of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law.
Sinema secured $11.3 million in the bipartisan infrastructure law for Arizona this year alone to build electric vehicle charging stations across the state. During the discussion, Sinema pledged to work with Arizonans on the ground to ensure the funding allocated for 2022 and future years is implemented effectively and efficiently.
The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law makes the largest investment in clean energy transmission and electric vehicle infrastructure in U.S. history, electrifying thousands of school and transit buses across the country, bolstering critical materials supply chains, improving energy efficiency, and building out a national network of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The Arizona Technology Council is composed of over 800 members and continues to experience significant membership growth in the clean energy sector. Sinema’s meeting with the council comes as she focuses on implementing clean energy technology investments from her law, which is of particular importance to the council and its members.
