The main goal is to support the expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure on the highways through following actions:

Create best practices and procedures that will enhance EV adoption by promoting EV consumer acceptance and awareness by addressing “range anxiety”; coordinate on EV charging station locations to avoid redundancy and to ensure stations are sited at a frequency and locations so as to optimize utilization and to minimize inconsistencies between charging infrastructure in each state; and leverage economies of scale;

Create voluntary minimum standards for EV charging stations, including standards for administration, interoperability, operations, and management;

Identify and develop opportunities to incorporate EV charging station infrastructure into planning and development processes, such as building codes, metering policies, and renewable energy generation projects;

Encourage EV manufacturers to stock and market a wide variety of evs within the signatory states; and

Identify, respond to, and where possible collaborate on funding opportunities to support the development of the regional electric vehicle west EV corridor.

There is more than 5,000 miles of major highways across east-west interstates 10, 40, 70, 76, 80, 84, 86, 90 and 94, and north-south interstates 15 and 25 that would need to be covered with charging stations.

Interestingly, the combined number of plug-ins within those seven states really isn’t all that significant, just exceeding 20,000 vehicles, which is probably why the highway infrastructure is the main focus of the initiative – to support long distance travel.

“this framework is another example of the innovation and bipartisan collaboration happening around energy here in the west,” said colorado governor john hickenlooper. “through this collaboration, we will drive economic growth and promote our outdoor recreation opportunities across our states. Our residents and the millions of visitors to our states will be able to drive electric vehicles from denver to las vegas, from santa fe to helena.”

“this is the latest example of states like idaho being on the forefront of energy advancement,” said idaho governor C.L. “butch” otter. “in the west we pride ourselves on what we can accomplish by working together. This initiative will ensure that locals and visitors to idaho and our neighboring states have the freedom to explore the west in the way they prefer.”

“this state-led effort shows how western states continue to work together to find innovative solutions and plan for a future where increasing numbers of people and families are traveling the west in electric vehicles,” said governor steve bullock of montana.Money laundering gift cards “I am pleased to sign onto this bipartisan effort to take practical steps to realize the economic and environmental benefits of coordinated infrastructure planning that will benefit us now and well into the future.”

“it is important for western states to work together and prepare as the use of electric vehicles grows,” said wyoming governor matt mead. “this initiative encourages infrastructure plans that allow people with electric vehicles to visit and recreate in wyoming. Strategically spaced charging stations will allow these visitors to enjoy the same independence as traditional vehicles.”

“utah is proud to take part in modernizing the ‘crossroads of the west’ through working state-to-state to establish this strategic electric vehicle transportation network,” said utah governor gary R. Herbert. “by knitting together the plans of seven key states through cooperative partnerships one to another, america’s travelers will soon be able to experience the wonders of the west while enjoying the innovations of our day and advancing environmental outcomes.”

“our state’s portfolio encourages the use of all energy assets,” said new mexico governor susana martinez. “we’ve already begun to install electric vehicle charging stations at state-owned buildings, and we stand with other western states by making a bold commitment by supporting successful implementation of an EV charging station network along our main interstate corridors.”

I think the real cause of the problem, which has lead to extreme partisanship among political candidates and almost total gridlock in the U.S. Congress, is the way political parties have used extreme gerrymandering to produce congressional districts in which extremist candidates are more likely to be elected. I see some hope on that front from a new movement, which like many or most social trends in the U.S., has started in california: to appoint a non-partisan committee outside of the legislature to draw the lines for congressional districts.Money laundering gift cards this results in less segregated (in race, income, and political leanings) districts, which in turn causes more moderate candidates to be elected.

I certainly hope this movement flourishes!

Oh I’m sorry, is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour? — monty python

Argument for its own sake can be entertaining, but how about we actually stick to the subject here.

If you have any real argument, it’s the “large states vs. Small states” argument which raged at the constitutional convention which established our U.S. Constitution. I see no point at going over all that; it’s of historical interest only.Money laundering gift cards I’m glad that our constitution included some rather brilliant innovations to prevent what was called “the tyranny of the majority”. One of those innovations was ensuring that the representation of the “small states” was not completely trampled by the sheer numbers of those living in “large states”.

We live in a republic, not a pure democracy. You might want to review just why the wise framers of our constitution thought that direct democracy wasn’t the best way to run the country.

I think we would be better off if we followed more closely to what the founding fathers intended. If the electors in the electoral college actually did as they were intended to, and met to choose for themselves the best person for president, then we probably wouldn’t have wound up with someone so utterly and completely unqualified, callous, willfully ignorant, and destructive as wannabe dictator el trumpo as president of the USA.Money laundering gift cards

I had an aunt who worked in a research lab at the university of colorado in colorado springs, and she also had vacation house near estes park where I thoroughly enjoyed staying. So I can personally attest that, contrary to popular opinion, people do actually live in colorado. #128521;
