Transportation Department receive feedback on electric vehicles

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The South Dakota Transportation Department held open houses last week in Sioux Falls and Rapid City to get input on the state “Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Plan.”

Mike Behm, head of the Division of Planning and Engineering, told the Transportation Commission its part of a national plan.

Behm says they had a lot of good questions.

Behm says there were also questions about user fees for electric vehicles.

The state plan will be a framework to build a network of EV fast chargers on the interstate, linked to a national system.
