Pelosi Playing Stocks With Tax Payer Money...Again!
Do you remember a few months ago when people caught wind that Pelosi was making stock investments into Tesla, off of briefings and was quickly covered up by the GameStop saga? Well it looks like Pelosi is closing in on yet another big pay off.
The bill sponsored by Representative Jared Huffman and seen by Reuters would require at least 75 percent of the new fleet be electric vehicles.
Last month, the USPS said it was committed to having electric vehicles make up 10 percent of its next-generation fleet as part of its multibillion-dollar plan to retire its 30-year-old delivery vehicles, but could boost that if it received billions of dollars in government assistance.
The legislation is backed by some key Democrats, including Representative Peter DeFazio, who chairs the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and Representative Carolyn Maloney, who chairs the Oversight and Reform committee that oversees USPS.
The bill would also require no less than 50 percent of medium/heavy-duty vehicle purchases be electric through 2029 and all new USPS vehicles be electric after January 2040.
The USPS said last month it had awarded a $482 million contact to Oshkosh Defense to finalize production for the next-generation postal vehicles, rejecting a proposal from electric-vehicle maker Workhorse Group Inc., which met last week with the Postal Service to question its decision. The USPS and Workhorse did not immediately comment Monday on the legislation.
The contract, which could be worth more than $6 billion in total, allows for delivery of between 50,000 and 165,000 of the vehicles over 10 years.
In January, President Joe Biden vowed to replace the U.S. government’s fleet of roughly 650,000 vehicles with electric models.
Asked what it would take to buy 90 percent EVs, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy told lawmakers last month: “We don’t have the 3 or 4 extra billion in our plan right now that it would take to do it.”
