I'm not a fan of a one time charge to all, I'm more of a user based charge like VMT, but how do you pay for roads when there will eventually be no more gas tax?
Bob driving 2k miles a year shouldn't be charged a $165 fee when Jack drives 20k a year and is charged the same..

It's too early to impose an EV only fee. I think the bill also has a gas tax increase. But how do you pay for all the premature deaths gasoline cars cause? VW diesel cheating produced 1,200 premature deaths: MIT study I can see an EV fee once adoption hits a certain point but right now sales are single digits and total EVs on the road are negligible compared to ICE cars.
