WASHINGTON, Mar 31 (Reuters) – President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan calls for $ 174 billion in spending and tax credits to power electric vehicles and charging networks, but does not include phasing out gasoline vehicles, he said. a White House source told Reuters.

Several U.S. lawmakers have asked Biden to follow the lead of California, which in September said it aims to end the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger cars by 2035.

A White House official confirmed that the plan “does not include a gradual withdrawal or a specific date for now.”
