Previously approved by the Senate unanimously, Senate Bill 448 passes Assembly on vote of 32-10, creating new investment in transportation electrification infrastructure and a multi-state regionally interconnected electricity market to improve grid resilience
CARSON CITY, May 31, 2021 — Today, national business group Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) applauded the Nevada Assembly for passing Senate Bill 448* by a 32-10 vote following unanimous Senate approval on May 20. Demonstrating the bipartisan appeal of the new energy economy, this major bill will jumpstart investment in electric transportation infrastructure and require state utilities to join a regional transmission organization (RTO) by 2030, creating jobs and reducing energy costs for all Nevadans. The bill now heads back to the Senate for concurrence, and then will go to the Governor’s desk for signature. Its approval will drive significant short- and long-term economic development by spurring in-state critical energy infrastructure, renewable energy generation, and electric vehicle infrastructure projects.
