    Yes, we want spending to decrease. Investments that will pay off in a radically improved economy later, not so much.

    Although I will say I'd be willing to even forgo a reasonable investment like this, if we could just get the government to cut all of the petroleum incentives.

    We the people petition for charging stations

    The federal government is investing Billions to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles.

    This is a wise investment to be sure but why aren't there designated places to charge in places the federal government owns and operates?

    Lets send a message to Washington... spend a small fraction of what is spent on the EV tax credit to ensure EV owners can visit our National treasures without having to resort to burning oil.

    I stopped at the Audubon Society's station on Plum Island to enjoy some birding on the wintry Atlantic coast. Before I had even pulled into the EV-only parking spot, another birder rushed over, excited to see the Model S in the wild. As I plugged in (the Audubon Society has two free ChargePoints), we talked. He was disappointed that he couldn't afford a Model S, but he clearly bore me no ill-will that I could.

    "And even if I could afford an EV," he went on to say, "my employer will never install charging at work."
    "Where do you work?" I asked.
    "The VA hospital."

    If the President's goal of a million EVs is to become a reality, the federal government needs to lead by example. Other employers see the benefit of installing EV charging; why not the federal government? If our National Parks are supposed to be a haven for wildlife, why not provide infrastructure so that people don't have to drive vehicles there that harm both the local and global environment?

    We are up to 35 now. Impressive. Only 99,965 more to go before the administration has to respond!

    Come on, even The Death Star got 25,000 signatures.

    I think the need to enroll and do the email verification is keeping folks from doing it. C'mon folks!

    OK..I added my name..

    Will post at mynissanleaf.com -- being an ex-LEAF owner, I sympathize with those folks driving a LEAF.. they need to start thinking about getting a charge after just 40 miles.

    From the whitehouse.gov page...

    It's up to you to build support for petitions you care about and gather more signatures. A petition must get 150 signatures in order to be publicly searchable on WhiteHouse.gov.

    So, until it collects another 42 signatures (as of now), it will be slow going. Granted the wh.gov/dJoK link posted here will give all TMC members access to the petition before it becomes publicly searchable.
