Buying an electric car in California? You might want to wait a little while

Some new incentives could soon be on the horizon for electric vehicle buyers in the Golden State.

AB1184 would give a HUGE bump in funding to current programs, which have been in place for owners of low- and zero-emission vehicles since 2010.

The Mercury News explains:

Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, is pushing a proposal to establish a $3 billion fund to support the spread of electric vehicles with bigger rebates, more programs for low-income buyers and the deployment of more charging stations. It would also deliver discounts at dealerships, eliminating the need for consumers to file for tax rebates.

If that sounds like a good idea to you, I'd suggest letting your state assemblymember know you support the proposal. If you don't know who your representative is, you can look it up easily HERE.
