The Build Back Better Act was passed out of House Committees. There will continue to be debate and amendments on the content of the bill until a vote in the House and the Senate. 

We tracked the electric vehicle (EV) components – pulling any elements that call out or may refer to EV provisions.

This page will be updated as the legislation changes and our understanding of various provisions are clarified. Please check back often.

Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684)

We have also pulled together a summary of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act including all of the EV-related provisions. 

Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Summary
$0
ZEV Only ($ Billions)
$0
Other “Clean” Funding ($ Billions)

A few notes on the data:

  • The data source is the full markup of the Build Back Better Act
  • ZEV Only funding refers to projects that dedicated to ZEV projects. “Clean” funding includes projects where EVs are eligible but the funding is not dedicated to EVs. Both categories include manufacturing that may impact EV production and deployment.
  • There is funding for oversight of EV programs, but we have not included that funding in this summary.
  • We excluded sections referencing hydrogen and biofuels if they not listed as part of sections with electric vehicles.
  • The Committee for the Budget notes that the total number in the bills may not add up to $3.5 trillion “because the instructions reflect offsets and overlapping jurisdictions.”
  • DOE refers to the Department of Energy. DOT refers to the Department of Transportation. EPA refers to the Environmental Protection Agency.
