Maryland Senate Bill 168, to facilitate EV charging in multi-unit housing communities, including those governed by a condominium or homeowners association, is scheduled for a hearing in Annapolis on February 2nd, 2016. The hearing will be before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee and starts at 1:00 PM.
SB 168 is sponsored by Sen. Brian Feldman. I have spoken with his Chief of Staff and they encourage people to come to the hearing to testify. Hopefully a few EV drivers will be there to explain to the Committee members the challenges faced when attempting to charge an EV at a condo, rental or property governed by an HOA.
If you wish to testify, you must sign in outside of the hearing room by noon on the day of the hearing. You may also submit written testimony. Be sure to follow the Guidelines for the Judicial Proceedings Committee.
You are welcome to contact me and I will help coordinate with Sen. Feldman’s office to get you signed in to testify or to make copies of your written testimony to distribute to the Committee members.
